Michael Marshall talked about everything from his own professional journey to tips on how young people interested in studying architecture can move forward in their educational and professional pursuits. He urged young people to find mentors, connect with their local AIA chapter, and look at the totality of the profession and all the roles that support the built environment, including engineers and experts in sustainable design. He also talked about finding passion in your own backyard, saying that architects can be “catalysts” to help advance positive change in their neighborhoods and communities. It was this passion that drove him to return to DC to begin his practice here, after spending much of his life here as a young student.
“The future is incredible, we just have to be diligent, work hard and understand different cultures,” he added.
