The use of the term “Architect” has garnered a lot of attention lately. Some say it’s misused, others say Architects are too protective of the term and should focus on issues that matter.

      Hi Lesley, thanks for the comment. Generally speaking, you will need 5 years of study from an accredited architecture school and 3 years of IDP. I recommend checking out NCARB’s website as they administer the exam and IDP (which is undergoing some changes). The website is http://www.ncarb.org.

      Thanks, David
