The new Montana State Fund Office Building at the corner of Front and 14th streets will be another great addition to the ongoing history of downtown Helena. The design for the new Building and Parking Garage will be the culmination of the spirit of partnership between the State Board of Investments, Montana State Fund and the City of Helena. In addition to providing extra space for Montana State Fund, this plan will identify synergies with a broader city fabric affording additional opportunities in cultivating cultural and economic growth within the heart of Helena. Such an effort calls for thoughtful and inspired efforts in planning and design that seeks an essence of program as a point of departure for defining a quality facility. No less important is an architectural and urban design proposition that respects and complements the fabric of the City of Helena and celebrates the art of building

How to Be an Architect

Architects must be licensed before they can practice as an architect or call themselves an architect. There are three main steps in becoming an architect: education, internship and examination.

  • Education: The Montana State University School of Architecture offers a Master of Architecture professional degree that is fully accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB). In the United States, most state registration boards require a degree from an accredited professional degree program as a prerequisite.
  • Internship: Most state architectural registration boards require architectural graduates to complete an internship in order to become licensed.
  • Examination: All states require the completion of the Architect Registration Examination, in order to gain licensure within the 54 jurisdictions covered by the National Council of Architectural Registration Board (NCARB).
