Pressure point


Stress was the subject for a New York Times feature, so needless to say it chose an architect as a prime example.

Michael Jones of Robert A M Stern Architects admits to juggling multiple projects and managing on just four hours of sleep a night, but says he has adjusted to the constant pressure that leads his colleagues to 'blow up' from time to time. Apparently it is all to do with switching off your stress hormones when you leave the office. 'But if I didn't feel like I was part of something important, I wouldn't be able to do this, ' he says. Bless.
