    No...but I'm and English language buff...and you never end a sentence with a preposition... (no "at" at the end of your first statement.)
    Seriously... I am sure there are plenty of designers on RJ..and I know of at least ONE architect, too!!

    In that case you should also know that "and" cannot be used as an indefinite article, nor can you use ellipses to link a string of floating clauses. ;)

    There seem to be quite a number of us lurking around here. I trained in Architecture and City Planning, and work as an urban designer (i.e., design aspects of city planning).

    ah cool icon_smile.gif all the firms where i've worked have been very interested in urbanist themes (they're all OMA spinoffs so go figure icon_razz.gif), so i always get a little excited to meet a "real" urbanist lol.

    interesting that you got there from studying architecture. what shifted your interests to the larger scale?

    Architecturally educated, but not yet licensed. I also do project/construction management.

    I just finished up managing the design and construction of a resort in the Caribbean (www.verandatci.com). I also just finished up a house for my brother which was my modern interpretation of a farmhouse/barn.

    Trained as an architect but never practised. Second degree in math, which I view as an art form. Currently more into art than architecture.

    Almost 4/5 through the Architecture program. I'm loving it more every semester and really enjoy studying and designing at the urban scale.

    Stranded prepositions are allowed in the English language ;),

    "This is the sort of nonsense up with which I will not put."

    But aaaanyway, architectural engineer here!

    Scratch the surface of any magnificent design and you'll find a fag somewhere behind it. We're the ones that make things look good. Frank Lloyd Wright was bitchy and irritable and invented a style that became more famous than Elvis. He was married you say? Yes. And so are most of the men on these gay chat sites. Fags make good things happen in the world or architecture.

    Walk into any design studio and you'd be hard pressed not to literally fall over a gay man.

    I've been a Town Planner for a decade and I'm just 6 more months away from finishing the Masters!

    Remarkably civil discourse! I was expecting a retort more along the lines of "Fine. So where are all my homo architects / designers at, BITCH?"

    Be glad you are in an interesting and challenging profession.
    Used my Bachelor of Architecture and MBA with major in Real Estate & Urban Affairs throughout my career in real estate and construction management - design/problem solving can be the basis for success in many fields.
    Happily retired now - endowed a scholarship at USC School of Architecture restricted to a GLBT student which has now been awarded twice.

    Did a set of urban design courses as part of graduating with a Masters in urban/regional planning. Made me wish I could work on the design side of things now. Then again, since 2008, architecture as a field in the US has been through a deep trough of unemployment, so maybe it's for the best. icon_exclaim.gif

    And I can tell you from the American Planing Association conference -- there are a lot of urban planners, esp urban design-ers that are friends of dorothy.

    (I can't believe that I just used the term "friends of dorothy")
