What it means to be an ARCHITECT
A R C H I T E C T
Architects are dreamers. They have wild imaginations and unique minds. What makes a successful architect is one that has drive, passion and isn't afraid to be different. It takes a certain type of person to pursue this occupation and heres why:
Ambitious people are the ones that have a better chance of succeeding. Having drive and determination fuels your path to success. To be reliable shows that you respect your clients. Having compassion when conversing with clients is vital as you are turning their dream into a reality. An architect works hard to achieve their goals. Architects are innovative and come up with fresh and new ideas while exerting creativity and uniqueness. An architect has exceptional talent and grows more each and every day. To be experimental is to attempt the unknown and learn from mistakes. Architects are clever and extremely technical.
One needs to have optimism, realism or even better - both. Believe in your ability, attempt the unknown, while being prepared for anything. Turning wild ideas into reality while effectively conquering functionality at the same time is talent. When it comes to design, its either in your blood or it's not, everybody was born with their purpose. One needs to be flexible and have the ability to juggle multiple projects at a time.
Most importantly, LOVE what you do.
