College: Architecture is one of the four professions recognized by the Education Ministry in India along with medicine, law and chartered accountancy. It is not just designing; making layouts and getting them sanctioned from local authorities, but is an art of creating spaces: spaces that are built and inbuilt, spaces that create an environment appropriate for the required use. And while planning for a specific activity in such a space, how to makeit interesting, inviting, imposing and comfortable is the role of an architect.Creativity and Visualisation being the prime aspect of the architect, he also needs to have an updated knowledge of how to bring his imagination to physical existence on the earth.
