About Architects, Engineers, and Contractors

An architect is said to be a person who knows very little about a great deal and keeps knowing less and less about more and more until he knows practically nothing about everything.

On the other hand, an engineer is a person who knows a great deal about very little and goes along knowing more and more about less and less until finally he knows practically everything about nothing.

A contractor starts out knowing practically everything about everything, but ends up knowing nothing about anything due to his association with architects and engineers. 

Yet they still somehow manage to create things like these when you put them together:
Kinemax building at Futuroscope, Poitiers, France.

Habitat 67, Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Civil Justice Center, Manchester, United Kingdom.

Sydney Opera House, Sydney, Australia.

Walt Disney Concert Hall, Los Angeles, California, USA.

Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao, Spain.

Dancing Building, Prague, Czech Republic.

Stata Center, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA.

Darcons Headquarters, Delicias City, Mexico.
