    “Participating in the National Kitchen and Bath Association Student Design Competition was such an amazing learning opportunity. It was the first time I worked on a space for an actual client. Working through the design problem and creating a functional space is an experience that will do nothing but help me grow my career..."

    We featured the winning design by Alexis in our Blog. “I, along with my fellow classmates Mary and Krystina, became a Chief Architect Certified Apprentice last year, which is a huge accomplishment to me. I would also like to mention my teacher Mrs. Mock, who has pushed us to be our best in what we do and has helped in my realization that this is what I want to do for the rest of my life.”

    “At TSA Nationals I showed up to the room 30 minutes early to ensure that I got a good seat at the back of the room then I had an additional hour while everyone else arrived and the judges quickly interviewed us. Then we were all given the problem and the time was started. When they gave us our problem I began to worry, there was so much to do and I only had four hours. “We were given a floor plan to modify so I started first by recreating the walls, windows, and doors. There were holes in the design that I had to fix so I worked on those then began designing the rooms and other spaces..."

  22. If you are familiar with the work of Architect Frank Lloyd Wright, you likely are familiar with his iconic School of Architecture at Taliesin. Chief Architect user, Michael Rust, apprenticed at the school getting his Master of Architecture degree. We took some time with Michael to learn what life was like at the school while he attended and put together this post on Chief Blog to share with you! We love understanding the stories and experiences that created the threads that have woven us all together. Share yours too!
