5 things I learned at architecture school and 1 big thing I didn’t

Ever since I can remember, I wanted to be an architect. As a teenager I spent hours designing houses, drawing plans on graph paper and dreaming about the practice I would have one day (I also thought I’d be married by the age of 25!).


There is something so magical about well-designed spaces – I’m talking the bones of a place here, not the dressing that comes afterwards – and I wanted to be a part of that. Unfortunately, life didn’t turn out that way but here are 5 really awesome things I learned while I was studying for my architecture degree.
