Hi I am Doug Patt and this part 7 and the final episode in so you want to be an architect. Architecture like many things is about many things so I am sure I am going to leave some things out but here goes. Architecture starts with getting into school then staying in a major. Working harder than you are used to, all nighters, problem solving, fine tuning, bad habits, getting side tracked, learning how to draw and make models, learning how nervous you can get infront of a crowd, maybe failing probably passing.
Getting a degree or maybe couple, debt, travelling, working, not getting paid so well, wondering why you are not an investment banker, finishing the interned development program, studying for the seven parts of your exam, glad the exams not for days like it used to be, taking the test, failing the one part you never thought you could fail, taking it again, working for someone, getting clients, keeping clients, wondering why you took the exam, documenting the site, analyzing the site, evaluating zoning codes, listening to the client, dreaming, inventing, learning, questioning.
Studying the program, creating a schematic design, making changes, developing the design, making changes, wondering why you have clients, learning how to work with other people, evaluating complaints to zoning and building codes, working with structural engineers, mechanical engineers, electrical engineers, electrical engineers, audio/video engineers, interior designers , landscape architects, construction managers, owners representatives, and general contractors.
Coordinating professionals, drawings, plans, elevations, sections, wall sections, building sections, details, withdrawing the drawing you just drew, running specifications, staying up late, meeting with clients, making changes, preparing beads documents, reviewing the beads, making decisions, observing construction, problem solving, meeting with the client, making changes, arguing with the constructor, teaching a little, learning a lot, running site meeting, making changes, losing sleep.
Creating change orders, getting an ear fall, doing punch list, approving final payment, working for your self, hiring people, firing people, learning the law, working and eliminating the bad habits you have acquired in college, putting it all together, making money, working harder, dreaming of change, inventing, aspiring, pro creating, consuming, getting what you always wanted not really, living with what you got, and hopefully needing nothing more. And that concludes so you want to be an Architect Part 7. I am Doug Patt. See you next time!
