Puleese, Richard.

 

Waterproofing isn’t a structural engineer’s responsibility unless there is no architect on the job.

 

You need to stop volunteering us for more responsibility than we already have.

Ralph,

Have you seen the Stata Center?  And, do you know of anything Gehry has done recently that was not screwed up?  And if a structural engineer doesn't know how to detail a building so it will be waterproof he/she should stick to southern California where it hasn't rained for over two years.
