Architecture degree

Hey Guys I got a question, sorry if it's the wrong place but how many architects manage to get into designing taller skyscrapers? I'm thinking of maybe getting into architecture but I have to be realistic.
Also, I made a video on architecture about the sort of structures I'd like to design
Those are the sort of structures I'd love to design

Many architects would love do design a skyscraper, but very few actually get do design one. As with a lot of pipe dreams it comes down to talent, effort and luck. Wanting to become an architect just for the sake of wanting to design skyscrapers is ill-advised, but that shouldn't stop you from trying though. The "learning along the way" is almost as much fun as the "getting there" part of the effort.

Its really a profession for those who are hysterically passionate about it, not for those who want to make money.
Well, I hope the chances of success are better for an engineer cause that is what I'd love to be
