Architects and Designers: Please Send Us Your Stuff, Whether It Is "Sexy and Dangerous" Or Just Really Green
Over the years we have been called out on the houses we publish and the preponderance of high-maintenance material choices and big budgets. We have been taken to task about context and a lack of conformity.....We have been asked how occupants perform such pedestrian duties as putting away groceries, making the bed, and cleaning..... We have been called overindulgent. And we have been lambasted, again and again and again, for acknowledging houses with handrail-less stairs. In a nutshell, some readers tell us, the projects we highlight are too expensive, too different, too impractical -- too dangerous!
