When you are overworked and exhausted, there is a sense of kind of delirium and that’s why I think architects do all-nighters and they kind of do those deadlines.

Projects are usually undertaken to either solve a problem or take advantage of an opportunity.

Bruce Pittman

Yeah, with ‘NASARATI,’ that was my first project. I really worked literally three days on it, writing on the beats and putting it together.

Lil Nas X

Each project, I suffer like I’m starting over again in life. There’s a lot of healthy insecurity that fuels this stuff.
Frank Gehry

The biggest challenge for me has been in coping with my perfectionism. I have a stiflingly hard time moving forward in a project if it’s not ‘just right’ all along the way.
