There is no doubt that advanced computer programs have enhanced the architectural profession for the better. BIM (Building Information Modeling), along with more advanced graphics programs have allowed us as professionals to better convey the intention of the design and give some form of life to the package.
But for me there is no feeling quite like seeing those thoughts actually rise out of the ground. I love watching what was a drawing transform into the actual finished product and being a part of that process. Seeing the foundation, the bones, the guts, the skin of the building continue to progress gives me a sense of giddiness. The building comes alive and I’m a part of it! There are headaches—Excedrin comes in handy—but the coordination and cooperation of the entire design team along with contractor and owner can be a rewarding experience.
