What the ex­perts wish they knew when they started out

What the de­sign ex­perts wish they could tell their younger selves might sur­prise you, writes Robyn Wil­lis

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - Home - - FRONT PAGE -

We’ve all had that mo­ment where we’d like to turn back the clock and give our younger selves some prac­ti­cal ad­vice. For those who work in build­ing and de­sign, pro­fes­sional mis­takes made be­cause of lack of ex­pe­ri­ence of­ten come at a price, ei­ther in lost time or cold, hard cash.

So we checked in with some of the best and bright­est in key ar­eas of build­ing and de­sign who are at the mid point of their ca­reers to see what they would have liked to have known when they were start­ing out.

Be­cause while they’re all suc­cess­ful in their fields now, some of them had fairly bumpy starts be­fore find­ing their feet and hon­ing their craft.

The ben­e­fit of their hind­sight might just be the help you need right now.

Ar­chi­tect EvaMarie Prineas fol­lowed this project from start to fin­ish.
