The Importance of Mentorship

In a recent podcast produced by “Entrepreneur Architect,”  the Boston Society of Architects (BSA) president Emily Grandstaff Rice, AIA, discusses her pathway to architecture.

Emily talks about Gene Mackey’s “Day of Architecture Program” for high school art students, where Gene inspired her at the age of 15 to consider becoming an architect. In the interview Emily talks about her architectural journey, the many influences on her career, and her thoughts about young architects entering the profession. As the podcast producer commented, “It’s a good listen and a tribute to the influence of Gene Mackey, FAIA, as a mentor.”
