Visiting the Taj Mahal: Regular People vs. Architects

Visiting the Taj Mahal: Regular People vs. Architects

A degree in architecture teaches you to see the world differently. For confirmation of this fact, look no further than the poor souls who have accompanied an architect on vacation—people who, at some point between being dragged far outside of their destination city to visit some apparently exemplary office buildings, and stopping for hours to photograph structural details, probably started to question their companion's sanity.

But what happens when an architect visits the Taj Mahal? The experience of being in the presence of this wonder of the modern world must surely be so humbling that even he or she can do no more than stand in awe like any regular person... right?

The Leewardists are rewriting the contemporary history of our civilization through the voice of this elusive being, The Architect.
