An Architect must be a Cunning Politician


In Architecture schools talent and skill is not enough, you have to be a cunning politician to make sure that your mentors professors and advisors also take ownership in your work to get a good mark.

But in the real world of architecture in the end the design work is solely judged by the market. Don’t listen to those who try to destroy your ideas during its inception, ignore them.

Work on the ideal that you believe in, detail it well, build it well, follow the construction like its your child, and then let the market decide whether your work is worthy or not. Something designed and built with quality and class never goes unnoticed in a region, regardless of the level of education and culture of the people. A building of functional beauty has an irresistible long term gravitation pull to it.
