The profession of architecture works in close collaboration with numerous proximity professions. That includes marketing, accounting and legal personnel who work within larger firms, to technical, photographic, artistic and computer consultants, both inside and outside the scope of a traditional architectural firm. So no matter what you're into, there's most likely a way you can be involved with the architecture and construction industry. I learned recently that there is even such a profession as "window washing consultant." No Joke. Keeping skyscrapers shiny is apparently a high tech endeavor.

At any rate, the best book I ever read about Architecture was "A Place of My Own" by Michael Pollan. Written by a non-architect, it is a must read for you. See the link below
