How to Get Ahead in Architecture

#AU2011 is done.  Another year in the can.  Lots of good stuff.  And a bloody nose from the dry air.

This is the first time i have had the chance to sit in a talk by Phil Read.  It wasn't about wacky crap you can do with Revit families but about something MUCH more important.  He spoke about how architectural education virtually cripples us right out of the gate and potentially dooms us to a life of being undervalued wage slaves.

If you are a high school or college student contemplating getting into architecture, this lecture addresses some ways to make the best out of what is a potentially dubious decision.  Its worth reading.

Really worth it if you aspire to ever get out from under the thumb of "The Man"

As an interesting aside, here are Phil Bernstein's thoughts on graduating from architecture school into the current market.  Some similar ideas and themes....

See y'all next year.
