I’m Emma, nice to meet you 😃 I’m the founder/creator of First In Architecture.
I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself, and tell you a bit about First In Architecture.
I set up First in Architecture back in 2012, with the main goal of helping other students achieve the best they can in their studies. I had finished university in 2011, and felt that there were gaps that needed to be filled, or things I could do to help other students.
First in Architecture has now grown into much more than just a hints and tips website, with resources not only for students but professionals too. I work as freelance architectural support to architectural practices, and have found many things to write about that might help other people as I work on various projects.
I get numerous emails/messages from students and professionals asking for guidance on various aspects of architecture, so whenever I can, I write a post about it so that everyone can benefit from the content.
If you are new to the site, and not sure where to start I have listed a few things below that give you an idea of what you can expect from the site.
This is the everything and anything section. Essential guides, tips, tutorials that will help you in many aspects of your studies. Some of the most popular posts include:
I am really excited by this section. Understanding Architectural Details are a series of ebooks I have been working on which include the 2D cad details and 3D sketch up details to download and explore. I would recommend you check this section out.
This section covers everything beyond your studies. So, I have a selection of posts dedicated to cv writing, portfolios, job hunting and so on. I am working really hard on this section so it continues to expand.
Some posts worth checking out include:
I have put together a selection of cad blocks, available in both metric and imperial for you to download. I am always adding to the list, and if there is something you can’t find, let me know and I will see what I can do.
The downloads section includes some free and some paid for photoshop downloads, useful for your architectural renders and visuals.
Take a look at these ones:
There is much more to the site, but for now I think I have given you a general idea of what you can find. I hope you find some of the information on the site helpful – if you have I would love to hear from you.
I am really happy you have stumbled across my website, thank you for visiting and I hope you’ll come back again soon.
