I started, e-ARCH: Design Consultation, a small, online design consultation firm, with two fellow M.Arch students during the summer of 2015.The business is currently in it's infancy, but we are hoping to find work and grow in the future. We have been involved in no signiﬁcant projects as of yet, but one day...

Also, the freedom to pursue my own ideas. This project was a first for me in that I had literally zero outside input. No professors, friends or colleagues bounce ideas off of was interesting to say the least.
What advice would you give to individuals who struggle to decide whether it would be beneﬁcial for them to participate in architecture vision competitions?
Win or lose it's a good way to see how you stack up compared to the rest of the field which will hopefully push you to become a better designer.
