Reply To: Architecture as a career
this is basically down to the level of professional respect graphic designers get and the lack of work out there. Salaries are generally quite low in the industry in comparison to architecture.
OK, who wants to tell him/her?
I’m not sure that salaries are going to be any better, but I’m pretty sure that respect isn’t going to be anything to write home to the world of graphic design about.
Courses – DIT or UCD to become a qualified architect however there is no legal protection of the title so in theory you could just start calling yourself one. UnNfortunately I don’t think there are any part-time or apprenticeship routes to qualify in Ireland like they have in the UK.
