Evolving new avenues in Architecture
We have been hearing that this is the testing Time especially for designer fraternity of architects . Like other tough situation this one too has a silver lining to it and a treasure of opportunities. This is a high time when we can explore the new and innovative domains in the field of architecture.
What I am trying to draw the attention towards is exploring the new avenues for an architect apart from being just a design architect. The other avenues can be :
1. Technical Architect
2. BIM Manager
3. Specification Writers
4. Project Manager
5. Interior Designer
6. Workplace Consultant
7. Green and Sustainability Consultant
8. Estimation consultant and Valuer
9. Heritage consultants
This is not just the need of the hour but a whole gamut of professional services an architect can offer to their clients who generally rely for a complete package of professional service in a one stop solution approach.
These different realms are important at all the levels of service providing design firm right from a fresher to the senior most practicing architectural firm.
There is a trend and tradition in the other part of the world especially the developed Nations which because of their expertise in handling large magnitude of projects of modern complexities it becomes imperative for a design form to have expertise and experience in various new domains of architectural practice as mentioned above.
