Architecture: A disguised career.

There is a huge differentiation between architecture practices in comparison to actual jobs. Reality hits hard when you realize that things are way different than what they told you in school.

A sensible correction to this circumstance should be to reduce the dominance of the traditional and obsolete ways of approaching the career and making them part of a more balanced whole, rather than occupying the central position they occupy today.

Which improvements would you propose to build a more realistic educational system? Please join our free Facebook coaching group for Architects and share your thoughts about it!

It is necessary to encourage students to become who they want to be. Provide them with the necessary tools to build their future in a more personal way, according to their own interests. Let them know the vastness of opportunities it exists and stop imprisoning students to adapt to a working model that is only profitable for the system.

A system that is built on your hard work, expecting you to prove yourself every step along the way, even if it brings no measurable results.

A system that creates a fear of failure from the very early stage.

A system that propels competition and lays a strong foundation for years of fight, a rat race as you wish- for a position, for recognition, for contribution, for a project, a client and a better salary.

A system that fails.

Where in all of this is personal fulfillment? How this influences our future as Architects?
