About This Episode

Looking to explore alternative careers in architecture or seeking ways to realise your true potential as an architecture designer? This episode is for you.

I chat with Ines Hemmings, creator behind @whatarchischooldoesnotteachyou who shares her journey in architecture, from going off traditional career paths and exploring ways to bring value to the architecture fraternity by following her heart. We also share about our views on the opportunities future technologies will create in the design and practice of architecture.
