Architecture as headache

I know that headaches, and particularly migraines, can be no laughing matter, but this made me chuckle.

Thanks to Stephen Donald, who posted it on Facebook. It both shows how hard architecture can be and just how preoccupied with their life and problems many architects are in their love-hate relationship with their profession.

There are many far worse things in life than being an architect but to most of us, our own problems loom large. Frustrated at work? Can’t afford a holiday? Our automatic response is not to think of refugees, the homeless, the hungry. Are architects worse than others? Probably not, but living in a bubble of intra-professional marriages and friendships may make architecture seem like the only relationship.

Anyway, it’s a great cartoon.
