Does your job require you to travel around a lot?

I would imagine as an architect you would have to go around for new projects. How long do you usually have to spend designing a building and is your job done once construction begins? Also, have you met famous people doing this? Thanks for your time!

yes. We work around the world so I do travel allot. Designing and building a project lasts anywhere from 2 to 5 years on average.

Wow 2 to 5 years is huge. Is it constant work on 1 project, or do you have a few going at the same time?

What places in this world have you been that have inspired your style or your perspective on architecture? Have you unlocked any 'secret' designs that cultures do that most architects don't learn about?
