great, now I want pie
Firstly, I thought of Kahn with the diagram for modern architecture, which sent me into a sleep-deprived fit of giggles.
Secondly, I’d sooner name my pets after Italian rather than obscure French architects, if only for the amusing notion of Borromini and Bernini getting into actual cat fights.
Is it me, or is the square within the modernism graphic not quite in the centre of the circle…
Yes, Fred, it is.
I added a 10th chart, just for you.
Cat fight…. Awesome.
and, I had a cat named Ledoux
LOVE IT! always great! thank you!
My pie chart would be. 50% Mies, 30% Corbu, 17% FLW, 3% unicorns. My other pie chart would be 98% certain I should have gone to law school. 2% certain I should write literary porn.
Ahhhh… just when I was considering naming my new (not yet adopted) dog “Corbu”…my “mentor” did that a LONG time ago!
The client’s perception of the “Project Cost” pie chart is the inverse of the illustrated version.
unicorns and literary porn are the same thing really, so that’s 5%
Great post! Chart No.3 Project Cost is so true!!
I don’t know why you guys are getting all intellectual about cats and squares…all I have are spots in front of my eyes from these crazy charts…**screams Jody** What are you doing to us? Wait, those aren’t spots…they’re form ties from a perfect smooth wall of concrete.
These colors work better than the chart on your last post.
such an architect….
Like chart about appropriate color of the wall. Shows really tolerant way of thinking
coffee, red bull, Vampire blood, all necessary stuff to be awake
For the love of pie charts! I think I need to get more cats because I’m in that small “other” sliver with cats named Bea & Arthur – I love the Golden Girls (maybe a little too much?). Next time…..next time…..maybe the next one will be Jody….
It is not possible to love the Golden Girls too much. Give Bea and Arthur a hug for me. Best cat names EVAR
yes, yes, wait, wha?….
*backs away slowly*
My dog is called “Notorious B.I.G.”!
so good man.

I will never know how I survived those 5 years in University without coffee. I just hate the taste and managed to pull all nighters none the less Diet Coke sure helped though!
It’s the real true about students! :))) Cool

HAH! I know exactly who Le Corbusier was. Of course, I’m not one of your customers (yet) so I would be in the “red” in your first chart. (I am not related to Irving J. Gill but kind of wish I were.)

architect: 100% sleepless, 0% hobbies … but…..always a half of a bottle ….whiskey !!!!
I work at a printer and the number of addendums involving door schedules can be obscene….

its the little things that matter. like the placement of that square…. i especially agree with the architecture students one.
Heh, I love the first one.
