    I suspect the doctors and lawyers will eat our lunch, but just curious if there are any architect owners out there. As the car is this incredible fusion of performance and aesthetics - like our work is supposed to be - I am hoping others were as inspired as I am and jumped in. As a side bit, I understand that some/much of the car was designed on AutoDesk's products. Cheers.

    Yes, it is a lonely thread at the moment, and if that was an additional modifier, it would be perhaps the loneliest!

    Does it count if I designed and built my own passive solar home? While not an architect I am an engineer that frequently gets his hands dirty. The next big project is to add solar power generation to the roof. Tesla_house.JPG

    Is now a bad time to say "pics or it didn't happen"?

    (I can feel Bonnie giving me dirty looks for two reasons.)

    Ditto. Junior civil engineer here. I too am eager to install a PV system on my property. That will not be for a while though, my upcoming Model S purchase is devouring ANY type of other budget I once had.

    Hey Cattledog, I am an architect in Southern California with a really mellow golden retriever. I have had some interesting discussions with clients and consultants about the model S.

    My father, the owner of the TESLAs, is an Architect! He has 3 so you can mark that down as 1 or 3 ;-)

    He has his own firm in Northeast Ohio.

    Oh yeah, and his Grand-Dog is a 3 year old Goldendoodle named Oatie who's can be found on this forum somewhere...

    I trained as an Architect, but practice software engineering mgmt. (go figure) and have 3 vizslas. Does that count me with the Architects or SW engineers?

    I'm in there being an architect triple TESLA owner/owner-to-be and have a ridgeback kennel! but I am not half as interested in the aesthetics as I am in the whole idea! doing something that breaks the mold and invents where nobody else dares to or even wants to. and by being inventive is also trying to do some good for all of us. that's what I think is great with TESLA and what we can and should do as architects.
