"Perspectives who Practice" will consider the post-GSAPP career trajectories of the panelists with a critical focus on licensure. As the field of architecture begins to expand, GSAPP graduates are finding employment in the burgeoning tech and visualization fields where licensure is not always necessary. However, having a license does not always ensure a “traditional” architecture career path. A variety of perspectives on the panel will foster critical discussion around the function of licensure in contemporary architecture practice.
