The opportunity to work outside of one’s home state is often eye opening. No matter what field, expanding your knowledge to other parts of the country or world provides the ability to:
- Meet new people
- Witness physical or natural differences like mountains, lakes, oceans or plains
- Experience climatic changes like snow, dry heat or balmy tropical weather
… and for us as architects and interior designers, we get exposed to new aesthetic and architectural styles. We find the ability to broaden our comfort zone and design with new materials, new colors and new environments. Don’t be afraid to venture out into the world. Whether a plane ride or a road trip, the benefits outweigh any possible concerns.
