Brandy H.M. Brooks, Assoc. AIA, reveals in this week’s Doer’s Profile that she wanted to be an architect since she was a teenager and figured she would give to the community through tutoring, teaching, writing, and speaking. “But I didn’t really connect it to architecture,” she writes. Through a nonprofit she cofounded two to three years ago, she is now able to combine her ambitions, which she finds very rewarding, she tells us in the midst of this season of giving.
From reading hundreds of curriculum vitae and thousands of articles on architects over the years, one is struck by the depth of community service AIA members undertake and the pro bono work in which you are involved.
