Well, Its up to you...If you treat architecture as an ART then good. If you treat architecture as a means of livelihood, thats good also..Its good you learned all your theories in school..this gave you a deeper understanding of our professi˘n..then once you enter the real world thats where you learn the real deal of thankful for your so called visionary least they gave you a go the ART way ..remember artists go hungry because of their visions... Or to go with the commercial,generic way...actually it depends on you..ask yourself "Am I an Artist".Then you have your answer...Say hello to Mr. Wright,To Mr. Gehry,Mr.Libeskind, Mr. Eisenmann,Mr.Moss Ms. Hadid and the rest of the gang who are striving rael hard to take our craft to a higher level..a level in which architecture could lift the HUman Spirit...Architecture is the moment in which a building is imbued with a knowing magic that transforms it from mere shelter into that of a self conscious work of art...I have a strong feeling youll be the business type..well good luck and wish you all the success in the world....Architecture is the mother of all arts!
