Architect? tells theinside story of architectural education and practice; it is realistic, unvarnished, and insightful.Chapter 1 asks "Why Be an Architect?" and chapter 2 offers reasons "Why Not to Be anArchitect." After this provocative beginning, Architect? goes on to explain and critiquearchitectural education, covering admission, degree and curriculum types, and workload as well assuch post-degree options as internship, teaching, and work in related fields.
