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 September and October 2017  for both ARE 4.0 and 5.0.  It's time to get started with making progress on the Architect Registration Exam. 

story teller when it comes to Portland's history and our architecture. #portlandarchitecture #positivelyportlandwalkingtours #positivelyportland

I had a very inspiring chat yesterday with Eric Wheeler. This guy is outside everyday rain or shine, wearing neon colors and teaching people about architecture from the street. Not many people understand the spirit and essence of architecture the way Eric Wheeler does. He is my favorite story teller when it comes to Portland’s history and our architecture. #portlandarchitecture #positivelyportlandwalkingtours #positivelyportland

Went on a killer 37 mile ride this morning with Colin AKA one of my favorite cross country cyclists! We rode out to St Johns Bridge, up Germantown road, along skyline drive to newberry road, then a lap around Sauvies island and back to NW Portland while sharing stories of bicycling across America!
