Hi, I am brand new to this site and archictecture in general. I am considering going to arch school and would like some good feedback. I have
been researching on the net for a while.

I basically want to know, in your opinion
what is the future of the profession,
3d modeling not drafting,CAD skills, smaller fims, less or more work, people opening up their own firm, certain growth areas, ??

What do firms look for: BA degree or MA
Degree, More CAD/ computer skills or
other skills. Do you have to be an artist? Do you have to become registered, what is the purpose of becoming registered??

I have looked into FIU's program in Miami and want to know if you know anything usefull about the program down there.

Also, where are most of the firms (small or large)located and can you get hired while you are in school somehow.

And my main question is what do architects do all day, besides using CAD , business side of things, other
What is their main purpose besides dseigning buildings on the computer

I know there are alot of options, teaching, supervising, construction, other??

seriously considered this profession
and would like a good opinion or any facts about these topics.

Any info would be appreciated
