Architecture- the 'Oldest Profession'?
« on: July 24, 2006, 11:25:17 AM »
Having practiced in India on the fringes of the profession for 2 decades, I have come to the conclusion that Architecture has to be it (you either get out there and strut your stuff or rely on your skills and abilities as an architect to keep the clients coming in)!

Lucky are those who get pleasure out of it; heavan help those who don't!

Fortunate are those who practice out of love and facination for the subject; woe to those who find out otherwise after 5 years of specialised education.

And woe to everyone else around when architects practice just because they had no option after investing the time and money on the education only to overlook the real education that actually begins once you get out into the real world.

Most of us architects need to work twice as hard to remain anwerable to our built environment. Just look around us to know why. We deserve better!
