Fourth Year, Architecture

“I would like to be an architect, and eventually have my own firm.”

“What’s going to be the hardest part about being an architect?”

“I don’t know because I’m not an architect yet. But the hardest part of being an architect student is trying to balance what you want to do against what your professors want you to do, finding your own flavour I guess, and making it stand true to your designs and your philosophies while at the same time trying to get a good mark.”

“Are you going to change your philosophy if your clients want you to change?”

“Yes, I wish I could say no, but yes.  I mean at the end of the day, an architect’s job is to design for somebody. I would change my work for somebody in the name of money.”
