Architects, as individuals and collaborators, have their own philosophy, responsive to ideals and aesthetics.  The ability to interpret specific intentions into purposeful, responsible design is the key to great architecture.  During the intense process of developing a design there is a moment in which intuition kicks in and it feels as if one has found the right formula to solve a complex mathematical equation.  Accompanied by knowledge and experience, I believe architecture is intuitive and instinctive.

Drexel University, Philadelphia, PA, US, BArch, Bachelor of Architecture Degree (BArch); 2+4 Year Program

As described by Drexel University:
The 2+4 Option is an accelerated route designed for a small class of well-prepared students entering directly from high school. In this program two years of full-time coursework address the basic principles of architectural design and satisfy fundamental university core requirements in the arts and sciences as well as those job-related skills that are needed for entry-level professional positions. A comprehensive review of performance will take place after each year to ensure that students are making sufficient progress in all areas.
After successfully completing the minimum requirements of the full-time phase, students find full-time employment in the building industry, including architecture firms, while continuing their academic program part-time in the evening for four additional years. By combining work and study, Drexel students may be able to simultaneously satisfy their required internship for licensure (IDP) while completing their professional degree, thus qualifying for the registration exam on graduation in most jurisdictions.
