developing a "practice routine" for architecture

Musicians have daily practice routines to develop their skills. What would a daily practice routine for architects look like? Simply drafting stuff every day is not enough to build skills - there is only a small amount of learning going on, the rest is click, click, click. So what kind of routine should I adopt to really build my skills?

ok so this is coming from a student/working in the industry .......i work for as many office as i can i usually change offices,jobs every 6 months ...this also includes in working in various industries to learn more about ur customer nad people .from working at the red cross to a shop , the experiences I've gained are awesome.

1)as for archi skills i usually go through architecture magazines and copy some the buildings i really like by "hand' and look at loads of art ,+ industrial design

2) I try to understand why the architect to did a ,b or c and try to improve it

3) I carry my sketch book everywhere i love sketching details of complex structures and try to figure out how they were built/engineered

4) even if i'm working on a boring project 'n doing cad monkey work that i hate at the office i take the project home ,try and improve the lead architects design or great new proposals ...then i get crits

5) I give crits to everyone below me but i also take crits from every below me

6) competitions

I think knowledge can also be upgraded by searching online the latest architect and learn from them.

Well, as with many other skills to, its better to do a design of a building with a systematic way of solving the requirements of the building project.

Start with the city and its individualistic shape(s).

Then watch the location and its surroundings.

By then you may already have been found an idea of something special to put into the design.

Then maybe start with a very rough idea of the building. Try various kubatures and so on.

And then proceed with that path, when you've found something of your interest and something that has a uniqe quality.

And then, well: just do all the thousand details



So, start with the rough and finish with the fine
