Join us on Thursday, January 28th for Best Practice, a virtual fireside chat series dedicated to practice operations at architecture firms and beyond. From pain points to potential, hear how leaders in the architecture and engineering industry are innovating through new business models and managerial techniques.
We’re chatting with Marc Teer.

Marc founded Black Spectacles in 2010 to advance the creative potential of architecture and design through online learning. In the years since, Black Spectacles has become the first and only NCARB-approved test prep provider for all six divisions of the ARE® 5.0 exam. In striving to democratize the learning process, the software-based platform is continuously introducing new educational offerings that help architects thrive in their careers.

About Black Spectacles
Black Spectacles helps educate and inspire architects around the world to thrive in their career. Born out of feeling a lack of guidance in the early stages of architectural education and career, Teer sought to ensure other architects would have the influence and connections that he didn’t. Black Spectacles was created to provide young professionals with the inside track to propel them to become resources and mentors for the next generation of architects.
