Texas Architect Jan/Feb 2006: Schools
Texas Architect is the official publication of the Texas Society of Architects, each edition features recently completed projects and other editorial content largely written by AIA members in Texas. That collective participation was the basis of Texas Architect’s recognition by the national AIA with a 2010 Institute Honor for Collaborative Achievement.
S C H O O L S A D V I C E F O R G R A D U A T E S Words of Wisdom A roundtable of counsel for future architects Texas Architect posed the question: “What advice would you give to graduating architecture students?” The responses from the practitioners and educators who were asked ranged from the practical to the ideological to the intellectual. The heart of all their messages is to follow one’s heart and trust in intuition when making choices about where to work and in which area to focus. Take heart in the advice of your teachers and peers—a welcome reminder of why you started this journey in the first place.
