Any inexperienced man or woman can learn to design their own home (school, hospital, town etc.) and then do a better design than any architect.

Architect Witold Rybczynski, a professor at Warton (and formerly at McGill) stated in CBC radio interview that a homeowner can do a better design job than an architect.

Even more so - if a poor community gets a lowly 400 MHZ computer to run SketchUP and/or other simple software.
