The middle of an architect's career can provide a turning point for a bright future or be a directionless hinterland. How is it for you? Are you where you want to be? Have you been forced off your preferred path by unforeseen circumstances or are you drifting?
Adapt as an Architect provides hope and direction. It is a crucial compass for design professionals, seeking to navigate the vast heart of the architect's journey. It serves as a roadmap - a career GPS - with options for architects getting from where they are today to where they want to be.
The focus of this upbeat, engaging book is on how you can remain rejuvenated and resilient without losing sight of the value of your acquired knowledge and expertise.
By signposting how you can maintain your relevance, doing what you do today, but better and smarter, it also suggests how you can reinvent yourself by doing something different but not so different. It provides the much-needed guidance and support that is often missing once you've gained some experience in the profession and are left to your own devices. It means that you won't be left to navigate those mid-career years on your own.
