Video – Architecture as a career – by ThinkTVPBS
An architect is a person who plans, designs, and oversees the construction of buildings. To practice architecture means to provide services in connection with the design and construction of buildings and the space within the site surrounding the buildings, that have as their principal purpose human occupancy or use.
Architects design the spaces in which we live, work, and play. Though not a “classical” STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) field, the field of architecture encompasses all aspects of STEM –science, technology, engineering and math, with a nice dose of art and design thrown in. The demand for architects is on the rise, and there has never been a more exciting time to enter the field.
In Malaysia, architects normally work in big architectural firms and some of them eventually end up opening up their own firm. Examples of Malaysia’s well known architects and architectural firms are people like Ng Sek San, Hijjas Kasturi (who designed Menara Telekom, in Pantai) , Kamil Merican of GDP Architects, Ken Yeang and Che Wee Boon .. find out more about them here: http://theculturetrip.com/asia/malaysia/articles/8-malaysian-architects-you-should-know/
