April 2015 Instagrams and Photos

Are you having trouble getting started or making progress on the Architect Exam?!?? Is the self-guided nature of the ARE not working for you?

Join our virtual study group. The ARE Boot Camp has a syllabus, a schedule with deadlines, people to study with and hold you accountable. The program is organized similar to a "design studio", to help you study for the Architect Exam.

We recently started accepting applications for sessions beginning in November and January for both ARE 4.0 and 5.0.  It's time to get started with making progress on the Architect Registration Exam. 

Here’s my photos.

All of these pictures came from my Instagram feed: YoungArchitxPDX Feel free to add me.

Small and deep quote about Yoga

We can study Architecture and come to know its myriad aspects and applications, but we must practice it with enduring effort and self-discipline for it to unfold its many blessings in our lives. #8limbsofarchitecture #WhatAnArchitectDoes #tapas #patanjali
