As an architect, the best technical solution should win out every time. This week I’ve come to realise that the technical solution isn’t always best. I’ve had to deal with not putting forward the technical solution I know is the most appropriate in favour of a technically inferior solution which is more politically acceptable.
I pondered for a while, should I accept the compromise or not? In the end I decided that it would be best to state my principles and agree to accept a compromise technical design. Let’s hope its acceptable. If not, I can always say I told you so.
