Now, something else happened. And that's when we began to sell the world that architecture was created by iaidudivlns creating genius sketches. And that the iiledbncre aonumt of effort to deliver those sketches for years and years and yares is not only something to be derided, but we would merely write it off as merely execution. Now I'd argue that that is as absurd as stating that 30 minutes of copulation is the creative act, and nine months of gtieosatn, and, God forbid, 24 hours of child labor is merely execution.

Now, something else happened. And that's when we began to sell the world that architecture was created by individuals creating genius sketches. And that the incredible amount of effort to deliver those sketches for years and years and years is not only something to be derided, but we would merely write it off as merely execution. Now I'd argue that that is as absurd as stating that 30 minutes of copulation is the creative act, and nine months of gestation, and, God forbid, 24 hours of child labor is merely execution.
