Archispeak  defined as: “Large, made-up words that architects and designers use to make themselves sound smarter than you (you being the client or the confused observer of design). It does nothing to inform or enlighten the consumer of architecture and mostly serves to numb them into obedience or self doubt.”

I thought this was important to get out there. It’s a true story. I’m totally not making this up. Check out that Slate Article. SO. TRUE!

*Please note*: I do NOT speak “archispeak”. I made it through 5 tortuous years of design school feeling dumb because I didn’t. It made me feel horrible.

But O,  then I remembered there’s the whole rest of the real and normal world.

And that made me feel better.
