It's not about all that ego stuff. I'm not insulted, especially at such a mundane detail. Maybe in residential architecture this mindset can exist. I've done some residential in the past and I can see this occurring with some architects and clients. But with commercial and institutional work (we're not talking about big projects for Harvard, MIT or Yale!)..this idea of rejecting the client because they don't see the genius of your vision is rubbish. We all do our best to present reasonable, cost-effective, efficient and attractive options...which will not take forever to design...or to construct...and sometimes one of the options gains some traction...sometimes not. Life goes on. The bills get paid. Especially when there are many employees in the office, there's no room for ego; you have to keep everyone rolling along.
