A successful architectural career is the result of many factors, including education, design, proficiency and simple luck. This book offers stories of many diverse paths to success for those interested in starting or managing an architecture practice. Twenty-five innovators tell about their beginnings, mentors, mistakes and lessons learned.

Architects featured in the book are located in San Francisco, Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, Orange County and San Diego. They specialize in a range of disciplines including sports arenas, performance centers and civic buildings, as well as residential and modular housing. Notable subjects include Ray Kappe, founder of Sci-Arc; Stephen Kanner, modernist and founder of the A+D Museum; Lauren Rottet, celebrated interior architect and Art Gensler, founder of the largest architecture firm in the US. They open up about highlights and low points of their journey and share how they survive—and even thrive during—market downturns, natural growing pains and business challenges.
