The criteria to become an architect

In this article, we will focus on another way than going to architecture school, like who do you build the habits of an architect, how do you develop your eye for architecture, etc.

Well, being an architect is more of a lifestyle than just a profession, architects breath their passion for architecture in the office and outside the office, as is mentioned in the introduction that architect is the architect is artistic imagination and creative vision to design spaces where their ideas and techniques-represented through form, light, textures, materials, and colors-combine to fulfill our aesthetic, spiritual, and cultural needs. that’s why so often architects never retire and they work until their very last days (see for example Oscar Niemeyer who died at age 105 and was still signing projects the year he died).

How do you develop your eye for architecture?

1. Reading 

Read about great architects and great buildings of the past. Le Corbusier, Mies, etc. set the foundations for modern architecture, and learning more about their work will help you grasp these concepts in their most clear expression.

you can read also Experiencing Architecture  Book is written in an easy and clear language that can be understood by a wide variety of audiences. Steel Eiler presents a series of buildings and overviews their details beautifully and clearly. He also analyzes the unique spatial experience in historical old buildings and in some modern examples as well. While we cannot go back in time, we can still design beautiful and functional spaces by understanding architecture as an art form that humans interact with.

2. Copying

Copy drawings from these great buildings, by doing so you will start to see patterns and learn the internal logic of the project.

Draw 

Draw anything you see, but special draw architecture. Just like it happens when you copy a floorplan by forcing you to draw a building you necessary need to study its proportions, details, etc. and you’ll discover a lot, after all a building is not a sculpture, it has a logic behind its structure, its spaces, etc. even when this logic is not obvious at first glance.

Take photographs

Take photographs of buildings, this doesn’t work as well as drawing, but it will force you to look at architecture over and over… and you know what they say, practice makes perfect!
