Architects tend to take themselves very seriously. Much is expected of us, and rightly so, but is all highly stressful. While many architects deal with this stress differently, we have Capers. Capers are parts of the program we’ve developed part of the grand design of el dorado. They are not just parties. They are wake up calls to help distill our essence, and to help restore Precious Bodily Fluids.
