Interview between host Bryan Toepfer, AIA, NCARB, CAPM and author James Tait
Featuring exclusive interviews with the internationally renowned architects: Kengo Kuma; Alberto Campo Baeza; Špela Videcnik (OFIS); Fernanda Canales; Jonathan Sergison (Sergison Bates); and Jane Hall (Assemble) Entering Architectural Practice (Routledge, 2020) is a practical and honest guide for architecture students, entering the world of architectural practice.
There is often a disconnection between what you are taught in architecture school and the actual practice of architecture in the workplace. As both a practicing architect and architecture school tutor, the author has first-hand experience of this disconnection and so helps students bridge this divide between academia and practice.
Focused on providing industry insight, dispelling myths, and above all providing a combination of reality and hope to students of architecture entering the workplace, the book is beautifully and richly illustrated, providing a compelling visual story alongside the invaluable information it imparts.
Serious but enjoyable, thoroughly researched but highly approachable, this book is simply essential reading for every individual about to embark on a career in practice.
