PiCA Alumni Talks
Spread all across the globe, at various levels of our career, we aim to bring together XPicans in this series. With the disruption brought by Covid-19, several projects have been impacted or stalled; salary cuts and job losses have become common. Architects are facing unprecedented challenges in their projects and practices. Bringing together a few alumni members in each session, we hope to understand the situation of architectural practice in the present and discuss potential challenges for architects in the future.
This series will feature XPicans with interesting career journeys. The interviews aim to support, guide, and inspire students at PiCA, and help them prepare for their future outside college. As alumni members, we have encountered similar challenges faced by the students—both in college, and on graduation. Listening and responding to our students’ doubts and fears, and sharing experiences on our journeys and careers can assist in strengthening confidence of our future alumni.
