Stewart, if you have the belief that there's not much scope for economy
through architectural effort, then yes, it's hardly worth paying an
Architect at all. But I know that's not the case.

A win-win is entirely possible. The Client (rich or poor) can pay much
less overall for a much better building and the ones (including e.g. a
key Foreman-type) whose flair, enthusiasm and extra effort make
unconventional routes possible get well recognised and rewarded.

Sure, accept payment in the form of fringe benefits if agreeable, but
leave charity and poverty-consciousness out of it.
