This studiousness we share with our students at the multiple universities and academies where we are appointed to educate. Our thoughts and theories are shared by our writings, which we use to reflect on our profession and to support the development of expertise. Our occupation distinguishes itself by preparation and self initiation to propose possible new futures for remarkable objects.
