If Architects Had to Work Like Web Designers

I just read If Architects Had to Work Like Web Designers and shook my head because very little has changed since this was written seven years ago.

Take for example the design by committee paragraph:

To insure that you are building the correct house for our entire family, make certain that you contact each of our children, and also our in-laws. My mother-in-law will have very strong feelings about how the house should be designed, since she visits us at least once a year.

I’m still designing sites where clients have a VP come in at the last minute and request changes. Sure, we tell them that we’re in the beta phase and that we can’t make design changes but who do you think wins?
