Architecture is a really interesting career where you got to plan the structure of the buildings and a lot more. If you are an architect and a customer coming to you for plan his house, and you are asked to draw his house, what will be your first reaction? What will be your first questions before drawing his plan? Of course, you will ask for his budget on this project, and second you’ll take his instructions on how to build his house, and how rooms that he wanted in the house, and the number of levels on the house, maybe some specific features that he want to add to the building and what not. But actually, customers are people who has no any knowledge on these kind of work most of the time, therefore you should be the one to instruct them.
Suggestions – So let’s just say you are with a customer and he wants plan his house for a reasonable budget, but according to his description, he’s got a job where he has to have calm environment with lot of exposure to the outer environment but the building should be more secured, what will you suggest him? Or what are your ideas on this? Well for this description, you got to use double glazed windows for his house to match with the exposure and the security. Because, gone are those days where you had limited selection of doors and windows, but now, we are lucky enough to witness the modern window and witness it, as now, it is more easier to plan buildings according to the description given by your customer.
Important rooms – But there can be important rooms like office rooms, libraries or studies where you have to be more careful when planning, because these rooms need extra protection as well as it should be lightened up all the time, but it is a huge waste of energy to use electricity for the air conditions and lights, for this you can actually come up with a great idea if you are a well-trained architect, but what is that? Of course you can use energy efficient windows to go with the both requirements. In this way, you don’t have to worry about the customer’s budget or the planning process.
As you know – As you know so well, if you are an architect, the work you have to be done is interesting and challenging, tiresome most of the time if you have no interested in it. So work as much as you can and then will get experienced enough to face with any challenge in this business.
