Becoming a Citizen Architect

PRESENTED ON NOV 07, 2013
IN WILLIAMSBURG @ ARCHEX PECHAKUCHA SESSION

When you're an architect you meet a lot of people who say, "I always wanted to be an architect." Jen Stringer said that and she made it so, through inspiration, disillusion, perserverance, world setbacks, and life's other surprises. The subtitle to her presentation is "my journey into a place I never knew I always wanted to be." It's a good place. We should all be so lucky.
