Interviews with individuals who have undertaken this journey are useful not only as inspiration but also because the diversity of careers within the profession is well represented. A life in architecture is defined by opportunity and choice. It can be a journey made confusing by the number of curricular choices and the variety of institutional settings and career options. This publication sheds light on the path. Every potential student of architecture will benefit from the guidance."
