Architect Saturday, June 17th 2017.
Being dedicated to your career is an important factor in any profession, but with architecture, you must be willing to put in a lot of time. This could mean long hours at the office, at the site and even at home working out the details, ensuring perfection until 2 a.m., if necessary. It is your job to make sure every project is safe and sturdy, and that isn’t something that can be done with little effort.
To explain it simply, a golden rectangle signifies any shape that can be wholly divided into up into a square and a rectangle that, when combined, establish a ratio of 1:1.61. Since both the lengths and widths of these shapes correspond to the ration, the theory states that you should be able to continue dividing the resulting rectangles into smaller and smaller segments while still maintaining the ratio’s proportions. The inverse is also true. If an architect wants to make a structure larger or smaller to accommodate their clients’ needs, as long as they follow the principles laid out by the ratio, they have the ability to correctly alter a building’s proportions with just a few simple calculations.
Type A personalities can have a bad rap, but they are the ones who make sure no detail goes unnoticed. Typically, nothing will go wrong under the watchful eye of a Type A personality; but if something does, this person already has a backup plan in place. Typical Type A’s are competitive and ambitious, and they have a strong awareness of time urgency. The job of an architect requires these skills (or perhaps it’s the chicken or the egg theory: is the job creating the personality, or is the personality just suited to the job?).
The Ellipzes story began in Romania ( a small country in Europe ) back in 2017 when founder and CEO Maurella Lamore launched a blog that would go on to become one of the most popular and successful online magazines to date focusing on interior design and architecture. Currently clocking up an impressive 3.8+ million unique monthly visitors, the site provides daily inspiration and advice to those who are seeking to improve, organise and style their homes. With an archive of 7000+ posts featuring over 90,000+ images of great interior products and architectural projects it is no wonder that Ellipzes has one of the most engaged online communities on the net.
