    Why are the outside corners of nail-attached wood trim often mitered and inside corners not?


     

    Question from Last Week:
    Architecture Puzzler #307

    "The engineer, inspired by the law of economy and governed by mathematical calculations, puts us in accord with universal law; he achieves harmony. The architect, by the arrangement of forms, realizes an order which is a pure creation of the spirit." Written in 1923, is this a quote by Frank Lloyd Wright, Le Corbusier, or Eliel Saarinen?
