Anyone still in high school or in a first year at college may still be contemplating a career in architecture. If they are giving this career option serious thought, they will have been apprised of some of the study requirements or subject criteria. Before going on to specialize in architectural design services, they will have been given notice that they need to master math, science and art. All three academic subjects play pivotal roles in the architect’s ability to deliver on his required work.
High school and college students who generally do not have a flair for the humanities but do have higher than average grades in at least math could consider a career in architecture. That is to say that they also have concerns over the current state of the environment. If no aptitude in humanities but a sound analytical mind, their talents would come in good use in the architectural sector. Students could also have a love for building things.
The artisanal skills required for the building trade may not be ideal for the student who is destined for higher academic learning. Current engineering students could branch over into the architectural trade by choosing architecture subjects on either the minor grade or majors level. Engineering and architecture go hand in hand, now more than ever, now that these skills or disciplines are sorely required to help formulate new innovative technologies that will complement the green environment nicely.
Much of the work that accomplished architects do these days is also based on inspiration. Apart from having concerns over the current state of the environment, there will also be a love or nostalgia for cultural or regional history. Combining this appreciation with a love and talent for art goes some way in helping to create a few award-winning designs.
