WHAT ROLE DOES MENTORING AND MENTORS PLAY IN YOUR LIFE AND WORK?

“Mentoring is highly important – we have a lot of young professionals that come in and they’re conflicted – do they want to become a celebrity architect, designing skyscrapers and the like or do they want to participate… do community-led, grassroots architectural projects? Mentors show guidance and relevance – when architects start, they think more about the design but then you often don’t get perspective until a project’s complete and you understand the eco-system of impact. Having mentors that can show you your role in that – in the impact your design has on the community – is really important.”
