Adrian Dobson: “In architecture it is a long road to success, but what does success look like.  Career development routes in architecture are notoriously ill defined, but there are many routes to a career in architecture which is rewarding personally and professionally, and profitable as well!  You may or may not be the next Starchitect, but there is surely a place for you in the architectural firmament if you can demonstrate your unique proposition and communicate it to the myriad audiences which impact upon the realisation of architecture”
