Architecture Cats!?

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. 

Architecture Cats

Ya know, Young Architect has been a little bit heavy lately.

Between discussing why I became and Architect, then creating a 10 week program to help you study for the ARE, then going on and on about all the problems and drama with the ARE I think this blog needs to lighten up a little bit.

Maybe now is a good time to let the architecture cats out of the bag.

Architecture Cats?!???

I don’t know how or why the Architecture Cats began. I certainly cannot take credit for them. I snagged them off the internet from a variety of places.

People constantly ask me:

Michael Riscica, How the hell do you find this stuff?!???

Easy, answer.

I don’t…

This stuff finds me. I am just a messenger.

I discovered the Architecture Cats when I was looking for a picture of Le Corbusier to photoshop, which then took me down a very long, dark and demented path leading me towards photoshopping some of my own ridiculous Cat pictures. A few of the pictures below were made by myself.

If you have any additional Architecture Cat images that I can add, please email them to me and I’ll throw them up on this webpage.

Without Further Adieu, I Now Present You The Infamous… Architecture Cats!
