There is very often a higher degree of challenge on institutional work. More layers of approval lead to more rigour. I think being a sole practitioner involved on what is often a multi-disciplinary approach on these type of projects, has pushed me and made me a better designer overall. Nothing better than having to answer to your cohorts-all with differing vantages. The work often has teaching or learning components, and I enjoy the additional layering that this affords to enhance these landscapes.
