Here’s a nice video about the tools an architect needs and uses.
Most people simply envision big white desks and pencils when they think of architects, however a lot of the work has moved to the computer.
This video is great because it’s created by a real architect, so it’s not very commercial. It shows that a lot of stuff has moved to the computer, but the old tools are actually still used a lot.
If you’re interested in this profession, this is a good video to consider what you’ll need to get started.
