Well.....here goes nothing!
This year I am embarking on a new journey. I have decided to write a book. That's right...a book. The kind you can hold in your hand, flip the pages and collect dust with. A real book. The working title is:
Breaking the Box: Explode out of Architecture School to a Successful Career as an Architect
I believe that architects are natural leaders with the ability to change the world. Architecture students enter the profession grossly underprepared for the realities of a career in architecture. Furthermore the industry does a poor job of fostering young talent and as a result the needs of young architects are not being met. Many are floundering or worse, leaving the profession all together. I am writing this book because I want to help the current generation of young architects bridge the gap between the academy and the profession and propel readers to a more fulfilling and successful career as an architect.
So who's coming with me!
I will be focusing my writing for the next 6 months on this project. I will be sharing the chapters as they are produced under the Breaking the Box tab at the top of this page.
I expect there to be an occasional Buildings Are Cool blog however my focus will be on the book.
If you'd like to follow along with the book I suggest you start at the beginning:

I know that this book will not be for everybody. For fans of Buildings Are Cool not in the architecture industry I thank you in advance for your patience. I will be back.
Wish me luck!
