I distinctly remember this scene in this terrible movie. The girlfriend asks "What are you looking at?" and the architect archly replies "I'm concerned about this fenestration" to which the girlfriend says "Huh?" and the architect smiles condescendingly and says "Fenestration means windows" and then I roll my eyes until they hurt and deeply, harshly question why I chose to join this obnoxious preening profession.

All-encompassing means it is the kid's lifestyle too, and not by choice. And the kid knows better but the dad doesn't. The look on the kid's face says, I guess I'll take myself to the museum then and you can stay here and adjust little lines on a page. But the dad could be an awesome person to go to the museum with, being an architect. Sad, yes. That's why it's funny.

That photos a bit unfair for Architects as this situation all the time and it's not just because it features an architect. Lots of Dad's bring their work home. I worked from home for about 7-8 years while my kids were very young. I have two distinct images one of my young some venturing into my office ( the garage ) for the first time with wide eyed bewilderment and genuine enjoyment to see that I was home, he had never figured out that I was there all day long and started a long term tradition of him coming home and sitting beside me to do his "homework", basically colouring.

The other was a when I had created a small studio in another part of the house ( so that I couldn't walk to the office in slippers and a house coat ) and all three of my kids walked in after visiting a friend whose dog had just had puppies and each kid walked in holding a four week old Bernise Mountain Dog and asked to keep them. Now, not sure about you folks but I am a total sucker for puppies and after that the whole office ( 3 of us ) and my kids played with these puppies for about 2 hours. That was beyond cute and tons of fun, and no we didn't keep the puppies but ended up getting our own a few months later.

Unless there is really a good reason for an architect to not have a shirt on in public view when performing architectural services, this is not to professional dress 'code' for attire.
