A Day In The Life Of An Architect

What is a typical day in the life of an architect like? We decided to tackle that question in honor of Architecture Week 2014, and this is the result: a crowd sourced video featuring over 50 architects and intern architects from 12 nations around the world!

As you can see, the sun never sets on architecture. If you are an architect, does this look like your day? If you aren’t an architect, does this look like what you imagined an architect’s day to be like? Leave your answer in the comments below!

#Architecture Week is a celebration of architecture and architects sponsored by the American Institute of Architects which coincides with the birthday of the United States’ first president/architect, Thomas Jefferson. Architecture week in 2014 runs from April 6-12.
