Not all significant architectural history came out of Europe. In many cases, Mexica/Native American tribes and Asian cultures were far ahead of their Euro counterparts. Learn more by checking my latest +STUDI GROUP installment in the History of Architecture. Read, Share, and Comment. #ChineseArchitecture #NativeAmericanArchitecture #IndianArchitecture #Detroit

Proud to support my good friend +Cierra Seay and her 'College Dropout" podcast. Check it out for yourself on Itunes. #podcast #detroit #collegedropout
I created this podcast to inspire, empower, and to mentor people like me. People who decided college isn't or wasn't for them but they still want to work for themselves full time. I've sought out many dropouts who I admire to tell their stories and share their wisdom. Go on this journey with me.

Continuing where we left off at the beginning of the year, THE HISTORY OF ARCHITECTURE PART 2, is my latest 10 minute article. This time we will be departing from nomadic agricultural cultures, and delving into the architectural inventions of Mesopotamia, Egypt, Greece, Rome, Persia, and the Moor and Islamic dynasties. We will learn how these early forms and materials influenced the architecture that we create today. Check it out on +STUDI GROUP website. Studi and share. #architecture #Egypt #Mesopotamia #Greek #Roman #Persian #Moors #Islamic #historyofarchitecture #Detroit

February is almost here and that means I will be picking back up on the informational series, "What is an Architect, Really?", hosted on +STUDI GROUP. The series is centered around providing clarity to potential customers and consumers of architectural products and services; how they work, what they do, how they're paid, etc. Have you ever wondered how to work with an architect, or how much one costs, or if hiring an architect is worth the trouble? Well this series is for you. We've touched on many topics so far in 2016 and have many more to go in 2017. To catch you up to speed, I'll be releasing previous posts in the series until February 1. "BECOMING AN ARCHITECT" is one of my favorite posts from the second half. It breaks down in layman's terms some of the procedural steps to becoming an architect and the emotional resolve a person must have. I have a bit of fun with this one. Check it out! #whatisanarchitectreally #value #howtobecomeanarchitect #architect #architecture #design #morethanprettypictures #buildings #detroitplayer #ARE5 #NCARB #AIA #detroit
