Why Did I Choose Architecture


I have always had a deep passion for architecture. When I was a child, I enjoyed drawing churches and houses, and I would look into the designs of other structures so I could pattern my drawings after them. I think it was that early interest that sparked my desire to pursue this field. I never looked back. I was determined to make architecture my career and my life. I knew that I wanted to create something valuable and lasting, something that other people could appreciate and enjoy. Through architecture, I was able to do that.


Being an architect can be both rewarding and challenging. I grew to love these challenges as well. It’s not easy figuring out how to overcome an obstacle or how to design an entire building with limited resources. I enjoyed being able to look at a problem and then be able to come up with a solution that wasn’t the obvious one. It makes me feel accomplished and satisfied.

Creative Expression

I also love that architecture is a form of creative expression. Every project I take on is an opportunity to show the world who I am and what I’m capable of. It also allows me to tap into my creative side and explore new ways of designing a space. Every building I make is a reflection of my personality and my individual style. It’s a great feeling being able to present a design that’s uniquely mine.

Accessible Profession

What makes architecture attractive to me is that it is an accessible profession. Even though it might sound daunting to some, architecture doesn’t require complex mathematical equations or a specialized degree to be successful. While technical knowledge and experience is required, much of the work is based on the talent and creativity of the individual.

Sense of Pride and Accomplishment

Finally, I chose architecture because of the sense of pride and accomplishment it gives me. I love knowing that when I’m done with a project, I’m providing a lasting addition to the world. It’s a feeling of accomplishment that I can’t quite explain. I get to look at my project and think “I did that.” That’s why architecture is the profession for me.

Social Impact

The most rewarding aspect of being an architect is the social impact that my work has on communities. I enjoy seeing the reaction of people when they walk through the door or when they view the structure I have built. It’s rewarding to know that my work has changed someone’s life and made it better.

Environmental Impact

Architecture also has an environmental impact. For example, I strive to design buildings and structures that use renewable energy sources and materials that are sustainable. This helps in reducing the amount of pollutants in the atmosphere, thereby making a difference for our planet. Furthermore, it helps people save money on their energy bills.

The Uniqueness

Finally, I chose architecture because of its uniqueness. Every day is different and brings new challenges. I have to be creative, flexible and always be learning. I have the freedom to express my ideas and come up with brilliant solutions. In doing so, I am able to make a lasting impression on the world and contribute to the development of new ideas and progressive projects. This is why architecture is the right choice for me.
