I have to thank my beautiful wife Danielle for her help compiling this list. And a special thanks to Marie Beck. Marie is also married to an architect and joined in on the fun. Driving with your architect at the wheel will always be an adventure. It will be like the highway is a giant building zoo for your architect. And if you are super lucky, you may even get to listen to an architectural podcast!
This is a Facebook post that Danielle made in the middle of one of those riveting road trip podcasts. You will never know what type of colorful surprise you will find in the laundry. A black pen, a red pen, sometimes even a green one! Your architect will keep you guessing.
You are guaranteed to go on some great vacations. And as a bonus, at the end of your trip you will have hundreds of photographs and sketches Your architect will forever be in a constant search for inspiration and architectural enrichment.
This is what happens when an architect visits Piazza San Marco in Venice for the first time. Need to do an arts and crafts project? You are in luck. Your architect's office will be stocked with all different types of paper, pencils, pens and markers.
Throw in a large scale printer and it will be like you have your very own personal Kinkos at your disposal. In fact, your architect is probably equipped at all times with a sketchbook, a roll of trace and at least 3 types of pens. Picking Danielle up from the airport with my trace paper sign. With an architect, there is a very simple trick.
If that doesn't work, just find one with Mark Ruffalo in it. The vast majority of which your architect has actually read. Architects love books, and if you are uber-lucky, you will find an architect that has started their very own Architecture Book Club!
Our library came with a cute little dog. I spy Lincoln Logs? After only a short time with your architect, you will have gained enough knowledge to ace your first year of architecture school. Naming your pets is a breeze.
An array of famous architects to choose as your furry loved one's namesake. And when your wife's maiden name is Fuller We already have the names for our next two dogs. You will likely find yourself in the middle of a discussion amongst a group of architecture friends and realize that you weren't really paying attention to or understanding the last 5 minutes of the conversation.
And then you will jump in and say, "I'm sorry, what's a mullion? When compiling a list titled: You will also feel pretty lucky to have someone that has that much passion about their life's work. Now go get yourself an architect! Special thanks to Jessica Martin for this awesome drawing.
