The role of architects in the society

In my opinion , an architect is the one who should serve the people or society as a whole in terms of their comfort, livelihood , shelter and may be health also i.e. he must be able to transform the society with his/her design of spaces. One’s works makes the one respectful in the society. Through the years, decades or even centuries, we could see the far reaching divergences or changes in the way the architect works and designs.

An architect’s role is to motivate people to change their mind on issues by explaining to them, as an expert, the ill effects that their actions have on the environment, or may be towards their own life. The forms of architecture that an architect build or put forward should satisfy or fulfill the human needs and deeds. He should successfully interpret the client’s brief, apply your expertise as an architect, and create a design that satisfies the client’s/user’s needs, one that is economically feasible and is aesthetically pleasing.

Speaking about the architecture during the ancient period, the first architects that comes to our mind is the Egyptians and their building of pyramids as part of their own beliefs. All ancient civilizations have contributed in some way to the development of modern society as well. Then the Greeks, Romans etc contributed to the architecture of the world  and that served the people of that century to the maximum and those building built at that age are still serving different functions of the modern society.

It’s our duty as architects to provide helping hands to those people who are still homeless , change the scenario of the future of the country.Serve….Support…..Survive……
