So what does this have to do with architecture? Well, as architects we are trained to be aware. Aware of the context within which we build, the requests of a client, legal requirements, professional obligations, our own design goals, the list goes on. Sometimes we become so focused on a single task that we lose sight of everything else around us, and sometimes what we are really trying to accomplish. Every so often we have to check ourselves and shift our focus, take another perspective, and become more aware. We may see something we missed before, like the gorilla in the room.
