Readers Praise Becoming an Architect
Enjoyable, fun and courageous! Although there are plenty of books about great architects, very few of them show how architects think and conceptualize…Despite the newer Design-Build delivery systems, it’s still the vision of the owner and the and the architect that forms the seed of every project.
—Robert O. Little, Past President, Ittner Architects, St. Louis
“Once I decided at an early age to design buildings, it turned into a quest: picking the right college, learning to compete in a larger arena and at last seeking an architectural degree. Along the way I met opponents and obstacles and dodged or overcame them. I traveled to study architecture in its original setting, absorbing its history and culture. En route I met many people and learned a lot about human nature. I sketched what I saw and brought home stories, honing my visual and verbal communication skills. I tell how I acquired my expertise, met a few great mentors and unlocked secrets of survival in a complex, difficult and ever-changing profession.” –Author Peter Green
