Who may think that the job of an architect is to build nice and functional houses so that the neighbours are impressed, is mistaken. The job of an architect is very multifaceted because he accompanies a project from the beginning until the end and is the most important contact person for the building owner. One of the key tasks is to scheme. As a first step, the site conditions and additional requirements have to be checked. After that, the architect can create a design, for which a sense of shapes, colours and materials is needed. Even the handling of computers is essential since the designs are created on a computer. In addition, a good imagination and the ability of visual thinking is essential because the architect should be able to imagine precisely how the project should look like. A house has to stand the test of time and must not cause the ruin of the building owner.

That is why the architect has to consider the static, technic and financial circumstances. Throughout the construction process, the architect is the contact person of the building owner, he leads negotiations and discussions , coordinates the construction and ensures that no defect occurs. Strong nerves are a must because not everything can run on time and as it is required. Architects have to juggle with numbers and dates, must think analytically and have to draw designs. However the social aspect, such as dealing with customers and partners, must not be ignored.

Whether you want to be an interior designer or work in the sector of monument protection or urban planning – the architect designs the world around us and has to deal with social changes and the latest trends. So you certainly will not get bored. If you are curious, take a look at the tasks an architect has to master in his everyday working life.
