What couple does not have a limited budget? It is within limitations that we have to work in designing houses for the upper middle third of the democratic strata in our country. Our clients come from that strata. We are often asked: “Will you build a house for us for $15,000;” or “Will you build us a house for $25,000;” sometimes for $75,000 or even $200,000.
The other day someone came with $250,000. He embarrassed me. Very wealthy people usually go to some fashionable architect, not to a known radical who is never fashionable if he can help it.
