This chapter gives Ms. Meyers' experiences as an architect, author, and professor, she has some interesting insights about the profession which begin with the educational process. Ms. Meyers' thoughts on the state of the profession institutionally and individually result from her work not just as a professional but also as a professor and a writer. Whether one is a student, architect, or writer, there is one central factor to remember: critical thinking has both practical and design elements. The deficiencies in architecture education are also reflected in the practical skills emerging professionals lack. Specifically, there is an interconnectedness between the art and business of architecture. What's more, those subjects should extend beyond architecture to include cultural and material history such as Intellectual History, Cultural Anthropology, and contemporary disciplines like Engineering to properly contextualize visual disciplines like Art History, too often decontextualized as merely a visual catalogue, much the way that Architectural History is.
