It’s tough finding an architecture internship and difficult getting experience when starting out as a student. This often forces students to work for free.
But, should you work for free, or should you get paid for your hard work? Let’s find out.
Conflicting personalities and ideas, group members not showing up and group members not doing any work. These are just a few of the many frustrating scenarios that you will experience when doing group work in architecture school.
You’d be happy to know that group work isn’t always bad times and horror stories. In fact, working in groups has been some of the most rewarding and enjoyable times during my years in architecture school.
Anthony explains how you too can make group work your distinct advantage in architecture school by bridging his practice with educational work.
In this special hour-long podcast, I interview Anthony Laney.
Anthony is a founding partner of Laney LA, a “high-tech, high-touch” architectural firm in California.
6 years ago, Anthony was told by a mentor that he wasn’t “running on all cylinders”.
Although he had a comfortable and secure job as a Project Manager at a respected firm, he decided to give this “entrepreneurship” thing a go.
With a warrior’s spirit, Anthony has managed to learn an abundance of skillsets to help make the dream of running his own firm possible.
6 years in, Laney LA now has 12 staff members with no signs of slowing down.
Today, we have a conversation about how it all became possible.
We dive into the journey he took to go from architecture student, to successful firm director, and what you can do to start your own journey.
Imagine taking a photo of a building and instantly getting access to all the information about it. From what materials it uses, who the design team was, year of completion and so forth. With Chaim Lieder’s app idea for architects and students, you’d be able to do just that.
On today’s podcast episode, I talk with Chaim about how you can enter and win architecture competitions, how to avoid late nights and manage your time better, Chaim’s app idea and how to manage and balance a side hobby or hustle while in architecture school.
