Moving on: nodes of change

The life cycle of an architect has traditionally moved through several phases. Decisions are made considering personal, professional and lifestyle factors. This seminar will look at some of those phases and choices and provide insight into some of the challenges they present. Whether you are considering becoming a sole practitioner, moving up the hierarchy of a large practice, or downsizing after many years in practice, come and hear architects from all stages of the life cycle address the choices they made and why.
