Aric’s Answer

Hi Anthony,
Like many professions it starts in high school. You need to be discipline and a good student. Because the goal would be to get accepted into an architecture program, which is not always so easy. Different schools after different requirements and all architecture schools are not created equal. You should decide what it is about architecture that excites you and why you would want to pursue this profession.
You can read an article I penned that will give you some insight into the architecture college admissions world, here is the link:

Once you get into an accredited program you will need to put in many hours, which many of those hours are fun as you work side by side with other unique individuals.
This will get you started!

Jeffrey’s Answer

The process is pretty set. Go to school, get an entry job, gain experience and get your exams.

But if you want things that make good architects?

Problem solving. All good architects are good problem solvers. In scheduling, programming, brainstorming difficult details, juggling client needs against the budget. All needs good problem solving skills

Multitasking. Good architects are good multitaskers. You will be working on multiple projects at a time and will need to ensure all of their needs are met. This means juggling a schedule full of meetings and site visits with document packages and drawing reviews.

Flexibility to a point. There will be hard days. There will be easy days. There will be late nights. There will be early fridays. You need to be flexible enough to do what needs to be done for a project and the company. Just make sure it doesnt get in the way of your mental health
