Good Introduction to Architectural Career Decisions 7 April 2004
By Robert I. Hedges - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In this book, noted architects Robert Piper and Richard Rush detail all important considerations related to the selection of architecture as a career. They cover the actual requirements for education, internships (generally an architect must serve a full time three year internship before taking his or her licensing examinations), and licensing. They further discuss what particular aptitudes a person should have to consider an architectural career in an excellent section where abilities in math and drawing are discussed.
My favorite feature of the book is the inclusion of information on career options beyond private practice, particularly in urban and land use planning, historic conservation, project management, and governmental regulation. Also discussed are salary ranges, requirements for school entrance, and a section on all accredited schools of architecture in the United States (110) and Canada (8). My only negative comment on the book is that internet contact information is not provided for the schools, but that is a minor point.
The target audience for this book is young people, mostly high school students, and college students with undecided majors, however, I am a mid-career professional in a totally unrelated field, who found it useful for information on career transitions (I am considering eventual early retirement from one career and returning to school in architecture, as after I complete my MBA I am considering project management as a specialty.)
The book is brief, and easily read in one sitting, but is full of practical information on this field. Anyone considering a career in architecture would be well served by reading it.
