Architects are the ones responsible to bring the construction and beauty of the cities to life. The word “architecture” is derived from the Greek words as meaning “order” and logos meaning “form”. Architectural design is the art and science of designing and constructing buildings, dwellings, public structures, etc. for functional as well as aesthetic purposes. In order to practice architectural design, an architect has to offer services in accordance with the exact design and layout of the space on the site with human occupancy or usage as the main purpose.
In India, there are many professional and highly qualified architects. Though India boasts of several eminent architectural MNCs, yet it is an emerging country with limited resources for architectural development and highly competitive market with other countries for the export of skilled architects. There are many organizations and individuals, which provide professional help and support to budding architects. The demand and supply of architects in India depend upon the commercial and investment needs of various projects.
If you are looking for an architect then firstly you need to find out the details regarding the project. Then you need to find out if the project is of any potential benefit to the society or whether the architects involved can handle the job efficiently. Many times, you may also be required to pay a certain amount of money for arranging the interview with an architect before you actually hire one for the project. Thus, it is very important to understand the project completely before you make any final decisions related to the architect.
