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 offers a syllabus, a schedule with deadlines, people to study with, and accountability. To help you study for the Architect Exam, the program is organized similarly to a design studio.

We recently started accepting applications for sessions that are beginning in January and February 2018 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: YoungArchitxPD

Jesus could have been a great asset to the profession of architecture. It’s a shame he became a sub contractor. #AdditionalServices #whatanarchitectdoes #americaninstituteofarchitects #ncarb

“I’m leaving in 3 weeks to bicycle across America, but I would love to measure your house and draw up a master suite addition.” #newproject #whatanarchitectdoes #canyouhavethisdonein2weeks #YES #stampingdrawingsontheroad #architectbeserious #NoShedDormer

April_24__2016_at_0654PM

I wrangled Mr. PortlandDesign.org to help me measure. I actually really like measuring houses. My first architecture job, all I did was measure houses and then draw them. I learned more about design and construction then you could ever imagine. #whatanarchitectdoes #stampingdrawingsontheroad #solarpanels #portlanddesign #11x17clipboard #dwpdx
