Types of Architects

Hello I am a sophomore in High School. I want to enter the field of architecture. However I do not know many architects. I would consider myself a very artistic person. I love to design and make the building "look pretty" and I have many ideas about creating. I like to fuse cultures and their styles together to create new buildings. Since there's many different types of architects, (from my understanding there's a type that focuses on the actual planning, another that oversees the whole project). I would like you to tell me the different types of architects, because I myself don't know what or where I should work in the field of architecture. Thank you,

First, congrats on your desire to pursue architecture.  I would suggest you strongly consider summer programs - see attached list.

The best way to learn about architects is to read/look at their work via websites or books.

You may also wish to contact the local chapter of the AIA (American Institute of Architects) to connect with architects in your area.

I hope this is a good start for you.
