The Top 10 Reasons to be an Architect

By Bob Borson, FAIA | January 24, 2022

The Top 10 Reasons to be an Architect is a good topic to discuss on an architecturally themed podcast and interestingly enough, this is the very topic that put the Life of an Architect website on the proverbial map. It’s been 11 years, 11 months, and 2 days since I initially wrote that article and I think it’s time we revisited the topic. Welcome to Episode 92: The Top 10 Reasons to be an Architect.

Bob and Andrew discuss these reasons and more:

  • It’s a lifestyle, not a job
  • People respect architects
  • Job is constantly evolving
  • Artistic freedom and personal expression
  • You can be your own boss
  • There are tangible (and sometimes euphoric) results
