When Will I Become a Designer?
The first time a young woman in her 20s wants to work in architecture, she’s asked what she’d like to do.
She’s a designer, she says.
When I think about the profession, it’s a very male dominated field.
The women who design are typically men and there’s a lot of stigma around this.
It’s not something that you can just say, ‘I want to do it.’
It takes a lot to break that stigma.
We have to have these conversations and educate people about the role of design.
This is the time when I’ve been lucky enough to have an opportunity to build some really exciting buildings.
I’ve built beautiful projects and I’m very fortunate to be able to do so at an architectural school.
I have a great team and I can learn from them, so I’m really excited to learn more about the world of architecture.
