Question : I’m in class 10 and now it’s very confusing for me to decide what is better for me. My parents want me to become an architect. It’s one of my passions too. But sometimes I feel that whatever I’m choosing is better or not?
Thank you for reaching out.
This is good that your passion matched with your parents expectations. This means you will get support from your parents. I can understand we all have this fear that whether we will be successful in a career that we are choosing as our future depends upon this career choice.
There is no doubt that becoming an architect is one of the best career choices you can make. The job pays you well and gives you the opportunity to work some of the coolest projects all over the world. If you have the interest, and skills needed for the career then you can be successful. To become an Architect you need some skills on a basic level like – Numerical Skills – Architecture is all about mathematics, you must have a good grasp of numerical principals and geometry and advanced algebra.
Creative Skills – Creative skills will play an important role for you. You should be creative enough to bring a new idea to the table and turn them into reality. However, becoming creative is a slow process, and you will need to get inspired by different ideas until you come up with something unique. Artistic Skills – You must have artistic skills too. Architect is all about designing, and at some point, in time, you will need to sit and draw something. It does not matter if you are using CAD software or pen or paper for the job. And by having artistic skills, you will know which process and methods to use to design that you are planning to and how to scale the design accurately.
