Who is the most talented woman in your practice? Easy. Me. Oh - there doesn't seem to be anyone else here. Can I nominate myself for one of the gongs?
Neville - obviously not, with brickwork that colour.
Comment on: Self-taught graduate aims for chartership
I passed the Part 3 in 2005, without an architect employer, whilst working in my own practice (as I did for the parts 1 and 2). I did not find it particularly difficult to pass as I had far more practical experience than I would have gained as a tiny cog in a huge machine. I attended Lincoln university occasionally and went for the interview there, but otherwise obtained advice from architect friends, RIBAnet and books. As a way to learn what you really need as an architect in practice, I thoroughly recommend it.
So how come you ended up as a journalist for a small architectural magazine?
