In the United States, there are approximately 120,000 architects who hold active licenses, which may seem like a relatively small number considering the country’s population of around 331 million people. This episode addresses what this means for those taking the first steps towards a career as an architect – students.
Host Bryan Nicol is joined by Interim Dean at the Florida A&M University (FAMU) School of Architecture + Engineering Technology, Andrew Chin, and RS&H National Design Director, Philip Robbie, to share their perspectives on current schooling for an architect, what students should look for when transitioning from the classroom to their career; as well as how the industry can nurture and retain top talent.
