An Inspiring Young Architect Story

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. 


I want to share this very inspiring video on Section Cut, about a design Intern who was really struggling to stay employed, stay in school and have money to live. Through entrepreneurship and starting his own company he was able to break out of the cycle that was keeping him stuck.

This is really a story about making a mindset shift of deciding not to be an “Intern” anymore and stepping up into the role of “The Professional”.

How much longer are you going to keep being an Architectural Intern for?
