Becoming an Architect

Masters at Work

Description

An illuminating guide to a career as an architect written by art and design journalist Janelle Zara and based on the real-life experiences of two experts in the field—required reading for someone considering a path to this rewarding profession.

Go behind the scenes and be mentored by the best to find out what it’s really like, and what it really takes, to become an architect. Design critic Janelle Zara takes readers to the front lines to offer a candid portrait of this challenging profession. What does it actually mean to be an architect today? What do they do? How do they do it?

Zara shadows acclaimed architects Sharon Johnston and Mark Lee of the prestigious Los Angeles-based firm Johnston Marklee. Learn from the founders as they near the unveiling of their major new building, the Menil Drawing Institute. Sit in on meetings as they compete for new projects, and watch as they conceive, draft, render, plan, construct, and execute buildings. Architects must juggle hundreds of items to ensure their ideas come to life as planned. Zara shows that good architects must have artistic vision as well as organizational acumen.

An accessible and informed primer on a hot profession, Becoming an Architect is the most valuable informational interview you’ll have—required reading for anyone considering this dream job.
