Architecture in the physical world

I was talking to my sister in law on the weekend about the software/corporate project problem (you know, high failure rates, etc) and she confirmed that much of these issues also face her colleagiues in the construction industry.

Two things came out;

1. They refer to a lot of predefined components in their design specs, and
2. They have trouble getting their clients to remember (and pay for) agreed scope,scheule and budget changes.

So, it's not just you.
