Precisely. The original message in this thread seems naive to me, in that, it suggests that architects and engineers are creating structures in an intellectual vacuum, without any real world context. This is such silly, childish nonsense. No competent deisgn professional that I'm aware of (and I've been in the field of architecture for 25 years) is going to spend one minute developing 3D models and renderings without also developing construction documents from which a building can be constructed. Also, no design professional ever embarks upon such a project without a thorough study and survey of the specific site and existing conditions in which the structure will be built. To do otherwise would be an insane waste of time and money. Granted, there are designers who design houses for sale as stock plans, and these plans are not site-specific, but that's what revisions are for.
