About Lecture Series:
Architects in Alternative Métier.
Origami begins with the same sheet of paper. Depending on the multitude of folds, the outcome promises various potentials. Likewise, the potential of architectural education does not necessarily lead to a single career opportunity.
Métier is a profession and for some, a calling. This lecture series invites eight speakers who are our architectural graduates but have decided to venture into alternative careers. They will share with us how their architectural education and experiences have influenced them to excel in their current job challenges.
These speakers will enrich our appreciation of the versatility and value of their architectural learning and how it has paved the way to their alternative métier.
