What do you enjoy about practicing architecture?

“I enjoy learning from each project, from each client, from each process, and then applying that understanding to the next challenge in front of me. Embedded in each project are thousands of value decisions, labored choices and analysis that can all be applied in some way to each new project. Having first-hand knowledge of decisions made and the reasons behind those decisions develops true expertise. The more we can learn from our previous work, the better our future projects will be.”
