4 Signs You Have What It Takes To Be An Architect
Love marveling at the construct of the buildings?
Fascinated with the way design has evolved?
Like wandering yet not overlooking the nuances of your craft?
Feel a bit crazy and picky when it comes to selecting work of your roster of clients?
- You are a creatively stirred person. Not that people in other professions are not creative – but you are a just way too creative. You envision designs that may look simple at first, but you know how to unlock complexity with simplicity – and make its look awe-inspiring via synthesizing your left and right brain to the optimum. Your creativity stems from being a visionary of your craft – that when manifests makes your builders and customers jaw-dropped when they see the ‘real’ version of your craft.
- You are a tinkerer. You love tinkering with designs until you reach your own version of perfection. You sketch with your discerning eye to see what will eventually look good post pen to paper work. You are not satisfied with the status-quo – and you want to ensure that your iteration reaches that critical peak of imagination. You like outthinking conventions and redefining architecture.
- You are a juggler when it comes to skills, competencies and work approach. Maths + Science + Art + your intuition: You are versatile and an astute multitasker. Be it numbers, angles or lines, you have work on demanding projects that may have different requirements and may want different set of competencies and team synergies to tend to. For example: Sometimes you’d need to be onsite to see the building’s construction, and sometimes you’d need to train your team in using a software to come up with innovative piece of marketing collateral to get your next customer – you know you will handle these responsibilities well.
- You have vast knowledge [not just] of your field, but also have a broader perspective of other industries: Learning architecture comes from many different sources of information; like marketing, sales, literature, communication design, arts, drawings, paintings, mathematics, science – and perhaps the list is longer than this. You are inspired by how you can leverage different pieces of knowledge and parlay those insights into your next project.
