My roots as wanting to be an Architect go back to when I was 8 yrs old and started drawing floor plans of my grandparents 3 flat apartment house with bay windows in Chicago. I was always in the city of skyscrapers and to this date enjoy the design of tall buildings. At age 3, anything from building blocks, linkin logs to "Kennars" girder building sets were the tools I was designing with at that time...again the taller I could put them together the more I wanted to try again another design...again replicating what tall buildings I would see in the city. Coincidence? Maybe. Let me know what else you come up with.
