Architect, the sexiest profession

“All architects want to live beyond their deaths.
Philip Johnson
With Beauties everywhere.
Before I really began my post, I would like to make one thing clear that this article is not about Brad Pitt wanting to be an architect, or it isn’t about Louis Kahn, one of the famous architects having three wives who did not cross each other’s path until his death. It is rather about Architects being a sexy, simply put, SEXY. Now don’t get me wrong when I claim, in fact more than a claim, making a boisterous noise of me being sexier for I am an architect, or little below to be calling sexy for I am yet to become architect. Anyways, whether less or being architect, it doesn’t change the fact the architect is the sexiest profession for males. Yes, you read it quite rightly. Brad Pitt working on Model
The survey, conducted by the introduction agency Drawing Down the Moon, found that women favored architects “due to the esteem associated with the profession”.
Architects are seen as being “balanced and rounded individuals who combine a creative approach with a caring, thoughtful disposition”, the survey found. It concluded: “Their ability to cope with pressure of work in a relaxed manner was also deemed to be a significant plus.”
Male architects beat stockbrokers, doctors, film directors and teachers on the top spot.
However female members of the profession fared less well and did not feature in the top 10 out of male preferences.
This survey report, not only ignites the ones in the profession to be much bigger and sexier, but it also kind of makes one feel sexy, yeah, much sexier in fact. You know, it’s a beautiful feeling to be being at the end of wishes of all the beautiful ladies around. (I am not laughing, so please you also please don’t, in fact what’s wrong in being sexy, yeah?) Whatever it is, let me defend the survey with few things sexy about Architects.
Architects are trained to think differently, and people expect us to be creative, intelligent and of course with a solution for every damn problem.
Architect creates. I often say to my friends or even to someone who is my junior, if one comes seeking suggestions or inspirations, that God created the world, and today architects continue doing it so. Our works stands the test of time and becomes the standing history of our world.
Architects earn big money. Well not so true with everyone, many famous architects have died bankrupt. Of course going by the salary paid in certain percentage of a project cost, it kind of sounds lucrative. And I don’t know whether these women who voted gave in the votes on the basis of the money we earn.
Being architect is as cool as its name sounds. Doesn’t A-R-C-H-I-T-E-C-T sound sexy?
Looking for inspirations on everything one sees around, being passionately observant and keenly working on the design isn’t there so much fascinating about seeing something beautiful and one goes wow?
Architects are passionate, simply passionate about what we do, so ladies, you understand what I mean?
By the way, lest few of you think otherwise or have different opinion about Architects being sexy, I am just doing a bit of self-comforting, don’t take it seriously. Just let me bask in the glory for now.
