A Day in the Life of… + Ask Me Anything with Lauren Jordan
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!
