Turning Point

July 1960
New Yorker;7/16/1960, Vol. 36 Issue 22, p27
The article describes how an architect and professor emeritus from an Eastern American university designed a house for a client, who then complained that the heating plant at the house was inadequate for year-round occupancy. The architect replaced the heating equipment, which proved to be no good either. Because of the incident, the architect was criticized for his faults even mentioning his status as a man of his training and mental capacities.
