Was thinking about going for degree; this gave me some direction to work with. The book itself is fine. My problem is with the author who teaches at U of ILL and makes all his students buy his book. I think there is a conflict of interest there. He should provide his book free of charge to all his students. This book is an overview of how to prepare for a career in architecture, written for high school students or undergraduates early in their studies. Waldrep is an author who has served in three university architectural programs and was the associate executive director of the National Architectural Accrediting Board.

In this book, he explains some of the paths that a student might take to begin a career in architecture. The book consists of 5 chapters: definition of an architect, education, experience, careers, and the future of architecture. Each chapter consists of a short bit of text discussing the topic at hand, supplemented with numerous interviews with various architects. Many of the chapters also have pages of quips on the topic by a large number of architects. The book is illustrated throughout with black and white photographs of notable buildings, mainly exteriors.

End matter consists of an annotated list of contact information for various architectural organizations, an annotated list of architecture and related associations with their web addresses and phone numbers, an annotated list of recommended readings books and websites , a list of architectural programs offering US degrees, and a list of contributors to the book with their affiliations.

I found this book somewhat informative, but rather unengaging and dry. While the interviews and quips could have added interest and exemplified or expanded on points made in the text, their sheer volume bogged down the message. The remaining questions are often similar from interview to interview, and soon become dreadfully similar as the list of interviews drags on.

Often, the information in the interviews does not directly pertain to the topic of each chapter, so the interviews can distract from, rather than exemplify the points made in the main text. Indeed, the importance of being flexible about one's career ambitions is mentioned by a number of the interviewees. Overall, this book offers a bit of information explaining educational and licensing requirements for architectural aspirants.

I don't think I would appreciate it much if it were assigned reading, however. This book is aimed at the young person who is thinking of maybe pursuing architecture, or perhaps for the student who is completing liberal arts courses and is wondering about what it would take to major in architecture. This book will take you from the very basic questions, like "What does an architect do? I think these are very helpful, because you get a personal experience and opinion from someone who is going through the process now or has graduated and become successful in the field.

My son is interested in architecture and is currently attending community college for required courses. This book will help him determine the path he needs to take to complete his training, with advice and guidance from those who have already been there. Go to Amazon. Back to top. Get to Know Us.
