RE: Architectural Low Rise Projects (Lateral Stability)

gentlemen
may be this was too strong a statement about all architects being a bunch of ass holes. but as you said they may be ignorant & and not stupid. but sir, their stupidity basically stems out of their ignorance first & then their lack of understanding and appreciation of engineering fundamentals.

I didn't say that, and I think that is WAY too strong a statement.

Some Architects do not--or choose not to--understand certain fundamental
aspects of structural engineering, and you have to hold their hands.

But I've never had an architect tell me "you can't put any bracing in my
building!" Few are that daft.

They might be ignorant, but they aren't stupid.
