Editorial 2/19: Splitting Ranks
For a long time, architects have constituted a rather homogenous species. In a small country like Finland, uniformity has been an asset and the architect-identity, at least to a degree, a shared experience.

The graduates typically take jobs in designing buildings or the built environment, although an increasingly large proportion end up choosing alternative paths and varied combinations of several fields.
