Architects and design professionals build our world ...

They make it safe, beautiful and sustainable.

Yet for many, it feels like an uphill battle, and few get the recognition or credit they deserve.

The complexities of running a business holds firm owners back, and keep them from doing their best work.

This is because schools don't train architects on how to run a practice.

As a result, society loses out on the creative genius of these professionals.

This is why Business of Architecture developed SMART Practice™, the leading practice leadership program for architects who care about their success as much as their architecture.

Recently, a group of successful architecture practice owners worked with Business of Architecture to implement the SMART Practice™ method in their firms.

These are their stories.
