One of the most important traditions in architecture has been aspiring architects and students learning their craft under the tutelage of experienced, talented, and accomplished architects. A recent SmartPlanet post explains that despite the toll that the economy has taken on the profession, it has not resulted in a downturn in mentoring. In fact, the article states that many architects believe the tradition of mentoring has expanded during the recession. Both the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) are expanding their mentoring programs. In addition, more children seem to be considering architecture as a possible career, with new programs and “architecture camps” emerging around the country. These are positives signs as the profession continues to weather the ups and downs of the economy.
