To be an architect, you must have a bachlor's Degree in engineering and graduate from Arhitecture college. Personally, I want to go to TheGeorgia Institute of Technology, which is linked here: http://coe.gatech.edu/ .The one thing I see fearsome of architecture is the potential of the building to collapse and end lives. Mental illness might occur from having to live with that on your chest. There are currently 200,000 architects in America, and a few spots opening and closing. Architects can become famous such as Lloyd Wrright who built The John Snowden house and The Guggenheim Museum.
