Arch Stories

Do you wish to become an architect?  One of the best resources to help you is to connect with those who are architects.  But that may be difficult if you do not know any.  Well, I want to share a resource that should help you.

Arch Stories - a compilation of stories from architects about their licensure story.

Authored by Katherine Williams (architect and writer sharing stories of great design, community improvement and diversity in the architecture industry), Arch Stories provides you insight on the licensure process.  It provides you a connection to architects who have successfully completed the task of becoming architect.

From the blog:

For many architects, the Architect Registration Exam (ARE) become a dreaded obstacle that one must conquer. Many of us have searing memories about the experience – the late nights studying, the attempts and multiple practice graphic vignettes, the panic of forgotten formulas moments before entering a testing room. Most of us who attempt the exam eventually succeed at passing and live to tell about it.

Do check it out!

p.s. If you are an architect, consider sharing your story.

Do you have a poignant memory of taking the exam, studying for the exam or some other exam/license related nugget? Did something funny or upsetting happen while you were studying or taking a test? What helped you get through the process? I would love for you to contribute your story to the ARE Stories project. You can write your story. Length should be at least 500 words and no more than 800 words. Alternatively you can be interviewed by an editor for a story.We would love to hear from you.
