Denise Scott Brown’s Advice to Young Architects

In a recent interview with the Yale Daily News, Denise Scott Brown was asked if she had any advice for aspiring young architects. Her reply:
Architecture is a difficult career. You probably shouldn’t be an architect unless you absolutely have to because it’s a hard career, you will never earn very much, you’ll work long hours, it’s not up to you when you work, and it can be very heartbreaking when everything you want to do you find you can’t do.
