Think you might want a career in architectural design, but have no real idea what training involves—or what it means to study "sustainable" architecture?
You're not so different from Robbie Hart. Robbie was a carpenter for 15 years before heading back to school to study sustainable architecture at Herzing College Montreal.
When he first started, he knew very little about eco-friendly design and had no drafting experience. Robbie understood the building process, but he'd never created technical drawings or used CAD software.
Now, just 6 months after graduation, he has built a successful freelance career as an architectural technician. Robbie is currently working for several companies, including McGee & Associes Inc. in Beaconsfield, Quebec.
