For Kylie Von Seggern, being an architect is much more than drafting plans for buildings on paper or a computer screen. Communication and collaboration are critically important.

“Architecture is such a vast field that you will never work by yourself,” says Von Seggern, who works at Alley Poyner Macchietto Architecture. She is based in Portland, Oregon.

My Advice

Take a lot of drafting and art classes. You will never know if you’re good at something if you don’t give it a try in the first place.

To the young women: do not be afraid to succeed in male-dominated fields. Sign up for the hands-on courses and get dirty in the arts, continually challenge yourself. Never be bored.
