Architect/Client Relationship

Never talk to a client about architecture. Talk to him about his children. That is simply a good politics. He will not understand what you have to say about architecture most of the time.
An architect of ability should be able to tell a client what he wants. Most of the time a client never knows what he wants.
He may, of course, have some very curious ideas, and I do not mean to say that they are silly ideas.
But being untrained in architecture they just cannot know what is possible and what is not possible.
