    Find a design school and apply. You can find architecture schools on the American Institute of Architect’s website. Most schools don't have an application fee, so it's worth checking out even if you're not sure if it seems right for you. Ivy League Schools like the University of Pennsylvania offer 5-year Bachelor of Architecture programs, while prestigious national universities like California Polytech state offer four-year Bachelor programs like the Bachelor of Science in architecture with a Master in Fine Arts (- MFA) or as a joint degree with master’s degrees in related fields.

    Many architects and even some schools are now taking notice of the growing need for architectural designers to be well-versed in all aspects of interior design. Particularly for residential projects, good architectural design alone is not enough without a complete understanding of how changes can affect or even enhance the home’s interior. Look at it this way--even if an architect designs a perfect kitchen with the latest cooking and appliance innovations, but that kitchen has no sense of style or coherence with everything else in the rest of your house - you might as well have handed her photos from one room and asked her to replicate it on different floors! In other words, there's a lot more to designing houses than just what meets the eye.

    Many architects have a Bachelor's degree with honours in a discipline such as architecture, engineering or design. Then, they work up through the ranks of their particular organisation from junior architect to senior architect. Architects can also be appointed to the top job relatively quickly by undertaking courses and training programmes in architectural management before completing their own design experience on major projects undertaken by their employer or university supervisor during course study.

    One route is to study architecture and design. Play with versions of spaces at home on paper, and then with digital tools like SketchUp. Push yourself by doing competitions or "design quests" like the one that Facebook's Inside Design team does each year where you must create usage scenarios for a new device in 30 minutes or less. Go to conferences (AIA – American Institute of Architects, IIDA – Interior Designers Association) that are relevant to the type and scale of project you are interested in working on so that you can meet people who work in these fields, see their projects first-hand, find out what they do day-to-day, learn about trends. Ask about internships and job opportunities as well.
