“[TeamUp] has shaped my viewpoint on art and STEM. It has really expanded my perspective on possible career paths.”
“My favorite session was about colleges. It was super helpful as a high schooler and greatly clarified what being an architect is about.”
“I really liked all the things we learned about but the [session] about office culture and a-day-in-the-life was really cool.”
What are you interested in and where do you see yourself in the future? We’ll use the first session to get to know each other. It is an opportunity for us to learn about your interests, and share about how we got to where we are.
What does an architecture office look like? What is “office culture”? In this session, you’ll learn about model shops, material libraries, and what collaboration looks like in a creative field.
What's the first step when picking out a school? Learn how to pick a college, university, or degree program that fits your interests; how to apply to schools; what resources are available; and how long can you expect an architecture educational path to take.
OF AN ARCHITECT
What does an architect do every day? Learn what an architect does at different points in a project and at different points in their career. Opportunities to talk to experts in other related fields may be available (Engineering, Landscape, Construction Management, Interior Design).
Join us for a tour (either virtual or in-person) of a building designed by LEVER.
What additional questions do you have about starting a career in architecture? We can answer any new questions you have about college, office culture, or the day-to-day work of an architect after the previous sessions.
