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: YoungArchitxPDX Feel free to add me.

What I love most about architecture is how our relationship to it evolves over time. It’s been fun stepping into a time machine to look at my life from 10 years ago and see how everything has changed. My ego, what’s cool, what’s offensive, who I’ll work with, the projects I’m chasing after and the projects I wouldn’t touch with a 10′ pole. Lots of people are mad at me for being brutally honest about the profession and I don’t give a shit. Their disapproval inspires me to keep doing what I do. If architecture was easy, I wouldn’t be so attracted to it. #empirestatebuilding #youngarchitect #whatthisarchitectdoes

Putting NYIT Architecture on the map!

Beach, Babes, Beer, Dogs, Duck, Drone! That’s the story of the day! #mollsacrossamerica

Took the dog for a swim, flew the drone around the lighthouse a few times and now back to work. #mollsacrossamerica #whathisarchitectdoes #livinginavandownbytheriver

Recorded another amazing Young Architect Podcast today with the inspiring Architect Nick Caravella! I’ve been recording lots of new podcasts. The Rachel Law and Kurt Neiswender episodes will be out shortly. #youngarchitect #whatthisarchitectdoes

The AIA NYC chapters picnic today was a lot fun! Met lots of awesome people, dogs and kids. Before heading home, I put the bird up in the sky. #architectandhisdrone #whatthisarchitectdoes #futureofarchitecture #peteythepup

Hanging out with World Traveler Steven Shewach and Molly at the beach! #mollsacrossamerica

We finally found the party beach for dogs. Sweet Lips swims around like a fish, while all the dogs play. #mollsacrossamerica #mollyriscica — at Coindre Hall.

Virginia is for lovers, NOT neo nazis, white supremacist and the kkk. I’ve ridden my bike through Charlottesville twice on my cross country adventures and I love that little town. I love Virginia, it’s one of my favorite states in America. Go back to the sewer you racist scum.

A bunch of Women in the big ARE FB Group started a separate group for Mothers in the architecture, design and construction industry. It’s super active, with lots of amazing people. I created a shortcut to it on FB at

This is Petey! Molls new little Brother. He’s 8 weeks old and is going to take over the world! #mollsacrossamerica #silverlab #silverlabrador #silverlabpuppy #labradors #labradoroftheday #labradorsofinstagram
