Profession description

Did you know the Mughals are considered some of the best architects in the world? They amalgamated aesthetics, physics, Islamic ideology and communal living into their structures. They had a lot of foresight as well, for instance, King Aurangzeb built the pillars of Badshahi Masjid at a slight outward angle so that if ever there were an earthquake, the pillars would fall outside and not inside on a congregation inside the mosque. Essentially, being an architect means to effectively ‘play’ with ‘space’.


Architects create designs for new construction projects, alterations and redevelopments. They use their specialist construction knowledge and high-level drawing skills to design buildings that are functional, safe, sustainable and aesthetically pleasing.
