Welcome to a new episode of the Wisdom for the Modern Architect series, where I share a dose of ideas, research conclusions, principles, models, books, podcasts, tools, and other random stuff with you, personally curated by myself.

Let’s get started.


📰 Story of the week

Here I am, thinking about my journey in the complicated world of architecture.

I remember the days when I started my own architecture business.

The nights I couldn't sleep, the tough battles I won, and how I never gave up.

It all comes rushing back to me…


I had to juggle tasks like finding clients and managing finances.

I had to figure out everything by myself.

It was like solving puzzles in a mysterious labyrinth.

But with every setback, I gained valuable experience.

Just like John Wick, who never gave up despite the odds, I pushed through the difficulties.


This is what I learned:


🦸‍♂️ Influencer of the week

Influencers are natural people, like you and me, who make an extraordinary job, and have the ability to inspire and lead with example.


In this episode:


Glenn has over 26 years of Business and Architectural experience.

He has owned numerous businesses as an architect and business coach.

He's also been successful as a practice General Manager and is an active property investor.

That’s why has extensive training and business experience in running professional practices.

Another John Wick.


📘 Book of the week

Reading books is like sucking other minds that have already been in your place.

Why should you reinvent the wheel when someone else is showing you the way?


The book I recommend you to read:


Ever thought about getting better at talking and working with people?

Let me tell you about a super helpful book called "How to Win Friends and Influence People" by Dale Carnegie.

Now, I know it's not about architecture.

But trust me, it can seriously level up your architecture career.


🛠️ Tool of the week

Digital tools that will make you a more productive architect, producing more using less effort.


The tool I reviewed this week:

Try it, use it, and let me know what you think.
