EVER WONDER WHAT IT WOULD BE LIKE TO DESIGN BUILDINGS THAT MAY DOT THE LANDSCAPE FOR HUNDREDS OF YEARS?
This is the job of someone who combines artistic and scientific skills to become an architect who turns concepts into concrete plans for safe, attractive structures.
The expertise doesn’t come easy, but it is work that has a definite impact on the experience of the spaces that people call their own.
Dan Godfrey, of Mt. Wolf, didn’t start out with a goal of becoming an architect. He took a year off from the classroom after graduating from Spring Grove High School. While working as a carpenter, he realized that he wanted an inside job to avoid the rigors of outside work for the long term.
“I enjoyed computers and drawing” while taking computer-aided design (CAD) in high school classes, he recalls. So, Godfrey checked out area colleges for more CAD courses. HACC caught his attention, and he enrolled to earn an associate degree in applied science as an architectural technician.
