Welcome to the real world!!.

As a consultant to an architect you will rarely:

	1.  Receive any recognition whatsoever.
	2.  Be recognized in any press.
	3.  Receive any design award such as a certificate or plaque.
	4.  Be invited to any glorification of the design feat.
	5.  Associate with anyone Owner contingency.
	6.  Avoid any complaints or lawsuits associated with any 	    portion
of the design.

For any structural expose's, watch any publication with Engineers or
technical artichokes on the staff!!
