Below are the common myths about Architects:



Architects are good at math:

I think Maths is important for Architecture but it's not a mandate. Most of the calculations Architects would have to do are already done in span tables, and the rest are done by their consultants. If you can visualize spaces and solve problems well, you'll never need to know what a derivative is.



Architects mostly design houses

Actually, almost all new single-family residences (otherwise known as houses) are engineered once and built hundreds of times by development companies. These 'spec' homes need to be standardized to keep costs down, meaning that the role of the architect is minimized or eliminated. When architects get involved in residential projects, it's usually for multi-family residences like apartments or condos. Architects do very few houses because of the cost to build a completely new home that has been designed to fit your lifestyle perfectly is much higher (in terms of money and time) than just getting something off the market.




Architects live forever through their buildings

Buildings have a lifespan just like you and I. There are some great and timeless buildings to be sure, but they're all subject to the brutal forces of supply and demand. Buildings are bought, flipped, sold, remodeled and sold again. Then, when the land value is more than the value of the building, someone tears the building down and builds something more marketable.



You have to be able to draw well

Computers can generate 3D models faster and more accurately than any human. You can also forget about Penmanship. What is often referred to as 'Architectural Lettering' is now found only in your font menu as 'City Blueprint'.
