    Chosing between a Mac and a pc is basically just a matter of preference for the operating system. The main reason why people have the perception macs are 'better' or more powerfull is because most pc brands make also laptops for non-powerusers. Apple only uses high-end models with ssd's so they are basicaly made for powerusers. In theory a laptop with the same components in and a proper cooling solutions should perform better than a mac because the macbook 2015 overheats at full load and tweaks itself back to half speed. At the other end, macbooks look very good and have very good battery life 🙂

    Kinda liked the seperate channel for architecture, (especially because of the cool name, really liked architalks) but also don't mind watching the video's on this channel 🙂 I have one myself and i know how much time it can take to edit, render and upload 🙂
    Great video once again 🙂

    I love this video! I feel like we are on a similar level. I'm in the UK studying architecture and the route towards becoming an architect is a little different. You have a do a 3 year BA, then at least a year of interning, then back to uni for a 2 year masters, then another year of interning and then some exams before become a charted architect. I'm about to begin my final year of my BA and I am so torn about going into architecture or doing something more design based. I'm so glad that I found you in YouTube, I love your videos and I'm looking forward to part 2!

    Could you possibly do a video showing some of your architecture work, I think that would be really interesting, thanks 🙂

    Hey Paige! It's my dream to become an architect! But the only problem is I don't really know how to draw buildings!! Is there any advice you can give me? Thanks 🙂 xx

    Hi Paige!


    I'm a junior in high school right now, and I'm sooo looking forward to majoring in architecture in college. Its just that I'd like to know what to expect in college for this major and preferably what can make me- I don't know- more "desirable" for architecture schools to accept me? (idk if that question was clear) Can you give me any tips?

    Thank you so much!

    Hey Paige, I'm from the UK and I really want to do architecture at university but I'm concerned about what to do for my portfolio & my drawing skills; I feel like drawing is my weakness !
    P.S: I love your videos !!

    paige! what school do you go too? I'm a senior at the moment & I want to know what other architecture schools are out there & since I should be applying right now, it's kinda too late to make a portfolio & since you didn't have too, which one did you decide to go?

    Hi Paige,
    Umm so I just finished applications for architecture (undergrad). I was wondering how much math and physics is actually needed? I'm moderately ok with both of them so I just wanna have a jist. Also can we get in touch through email, I have a few more questions? Thankyou, this was very helpful! 😇

    Hey! so I'm turning 15 and I recently had to choose my subjects and my parents don't want me to do art but I'm really good. I want to do architecture but I don't know which subjects I need

    I don't do Art in school, I take science, history, math, English, and French and Physical Education. I want to be an architect. I decided this after I chose these subjects. Is there still a possibility I can be an architect?

    Another question – what age did you start actually studying to be an architect?

    im a little confused, If I go to a community college first and then transfer would that affect anything? Do you do "architecture work" as a undergrad or grad?

    i didnt really understand how it works in usa lol. but here in México you go straight up to University from high school cause we dont have college. right now im going to my second year in architecture and i didnt know anything when i got in. and we dont call it architecture school because here you go to a uni and choose a career.

    Hello, Paige! My name is, Jagdesh and I'm from, Trinidad (the Caribbean). I'm 22 years of age and there are no avenues to pursue Achitecture in my country. I'd just like to know if I would have to do the SAT exam in order to get into a university in the US and also what would be required of me? Thank you very much!

    Hey, I'm starting my first year of university and I plan on getting a new laptop for school. What operating systems are more compatible for architecture design apps? I found a laptop that I love and it uses a Chrome OS but I can't find much info on whether its compatible for architecture design apps.
