A Day in the Life of… + Ask Me Anything with Devi Dutta-Choudhury
Whats It Like To Be an Architect?
Throughout a students’ time at school they learn a lot of conceptual and technical skills but very little practical information about what its like to be an Architect.
These sessions allow students to get a glimpse into what the daily life of an Architect on the job looks like. Participants get to know people within our industry and asking what they do – even if it’s not super glamorous its very informative and offers a view into what their lives might look like one day.
The format is simple after a short introduction, its all Question and Answers and conversation about what its like to be an Architect. We ask that all attendees come with a burning question you have for our featured architect this month.
Come join us! This should be really fun!
A project Devi is most proud of is her book House to Home. It is available to purchase now on Roost Books! It takes all of the lessons she’s learned building her own home, and working with homeowners on their homes, and provides a framework to think about your own home improvements.
About Devi Dutta-Choudhury
Devi has been studying, designing, and thinking about architecture for most of her life. Having lived in varied environments, from college towns to Himalayan villages, Southern suburbia to coastal cities, Devi credits these cross-cultural experiences with shaping her understanding of lifestyles and the homes that support them. She attended Tulane University and UCLA, where she received her two master’s degrees in architecture. She now lives in Berkeley, California, where she started her own full-service architecture practice in 2009, specializing in modern, casual design. She enjoys working on a range of housing types from larger multi-family, co- living, and workforce housing to townhouses and single-family homes. She’s active in local planning and advocacy efforts that support a diverse and dynamic built environment. She loves working on homes the most because of the personal relationships she develops with the clients, helping them live more meaningful and realized lives in their new space.
