Architecture is a career that many people admire, but very few pursue. The demands of the job seem unreachable for many.
If you’ve got a dream of being an architect and you’ve got the credentials, forget what people say about it being hard. It’s actually quite fun! Here are some benefits of pursuing it:
- Your Work Lives On Even After You’re Gone
It’s no secret that we’re all going to die some time. As a builder, you get the chance to design a structure that will last for years.
People will remember you with them. It’s even better that you get to see them while you’re alive. In some parts of the world, architects also get to ‘sign’ their buildings like artists with an inscription or plaque.
- You Specialize in Almost Everything
In architecture, there’s no such thing as enough information. Every project you undertake as an architect involves learning something new through research. You then have to fit the information into your particular work and understand it to collaborate effectively with fellow architects.
- There’s no Limit to Creativity
And now for what has to be the most beautiful part of the architecture: You’re free to express your creativity. As long as you produce a strong and safe structure, no matter the design and height, you’re allowed to put your style into your work.
- You Gain Respect
The more people see your designs, the more respect you’ll earn as an architect. You may even be a role model for many aspiring architects.
