An Architect and a Civil Engineer

“Civil engineers acts like Words but Architects play the role of the poets”

by -Utkarsh Mishra
so to have a beautiful poem ,words have to be arranged meaningfully and logically binded with the chain of creativity...

The most common problem people face nowadays is that they don’t understand who are Civil Engineers and who are Architects ..? May be the reason that they are less aware or our country is still lagging behind in the field of Architecture .Many people get confused between the two. Its like a curse for any person who belongs to a specific field and people call him or her by the other proffession ,its more like a heartbreak.

While on one hand Architecture is totally depend on feelings and philosophical concept, while The Civil Engineering is fully based on the structural and safety of human beings. Both are required and are equally important for the human beings. Because human beings need the both physical and emotional balance to live a live beautifully and meaningfully

As I’m an Architect ,therefore I will try to make your mind clear about what Civil Engineer’s don’t do. In this way you can easily understand the relationship and the wide difference between the two.

1-Architects are masters for making plans. They do the same thing for five years of their college life and the whole life.(plans means the architecture drawing floor plans and all.

2-We know about the physchology of human behavior and work in that way. We play with the spaces by adding the feelings. As JAHA HADID mam said that ‘the buildings rose our senses and they enhance our feelings’ .At some places we feel excited and enthusiastic but at some places we feel bored and sad. All is the play of the magic of Architecture and feelings.

3- An Architect guides all the functional aspects of abuilding and makes a person to move on a desired path.One of the major reasons why some malls and monuments attract the visitors again and again.It’s the magic of the Architecture.In this way the people got some time to live with themselves and they find peace from their busy lives.

4-‘An Architecture is a form of art and Not every body is an Artist’ .An Architect adds more value to our lives by adding the more and more meaning and a type of lifestyle. as it is said –

‘We shape buildings and than buildings shapes us’

5- Architecture is a very broad field and a lot of scope .But one must have that much of courage to withstand all the obstacles and live a very busy life. Many think that drawing the lines on a peice of paper is a very easy task. Yes it is but to give a meaningful drawings their is a lot of thaught process that undergoes .We have to do a lot of casestudies site visits and all the work .Its more like a proffession of a doctor.

I will say that -‘Doctors are the second face of God but an Architect enlightens us like God by the atmosphere.’

By -Utkarsh Mishra

6-” An art is an imagination and imagination has no limits so the Architecture” .But when it comes to the Civil Engineering there is a set of rules As Engineering is based on the concepts of Physics and there are the rules and laws which needs to be followed .

7-When seen on the wide scale its only because of the Architecture that our cultures and traditions are being preserved As I heard somewhere that “to destroy the culture of any country destroy all its Art and Architecture” .So now you can understand that how we are preserving our culture and also to make our new generation we conserve for future.Let me explain about this let me give you a example–>

As all the Muslims Go for Hajj to Madinah once in their lifetime and at a small scale they go to Masjids,Similarly All Hindu Go to the old Ghats and Temples . In future they would prefer to go to Ayodhya (Ram Janm Bhoomi where the RAM [Hindu God]Temple is now begin to construct under the Yogi's Raj) By the way- 'Bhagvaan ek roop anek'(God is one but the faces are different).But than also because of religious beliefs and culture Architecture preserves all. Our future generations will only see what we built today they will understand the meaning and their past only by these Architectural works.

Well that’s enough that now you are able to make a difference between the two, but lets give a focus on the Civil Engineers also they are masters in the structural framework and all about the safety of the persons living inside any structure .Both Architects and Civil Engineers are equally important for any good project .We both work silmultaneously on a projects and it requires a lot of team work and efforts to set a masterpeice for the future that is built in present .We are the two faces of a coin.

Architecture – ‘TREASURE OF IDENTITY’

India is a large country with rich culture and traditions.With one of the finest example of artwork of Mughal Architecture-” TAJ MAHAL” .Built on the bond of love .It captures visitors from all over the world.It gave the country its identity on the map of world occupying the place in one of seven wonders of the World.Yet there are many truths which are hidden which needs to be unfolded.

To through some light, let me make you aware layer by layer.As on the one layer we see a lot of population who are getting modern each day.They get the best outfits for their outgoings. By wearing the fake mask, they keep their social accounts and photos to a large number of filters….

While going to the ground reports, we find that people when asked about their questions on how their homes be like and whom they like to hire…? their answers be like

…. I will get it on internet as there are much available there …….

and also some be like

... ummm…..the house we are living on rent, we will get our house on the same plans…

I can’t understand why..?

Let me give you a example to understand more clearly ,

“If you are a ‘LOIN’ and you are said to wear the outfit of ‘DONKEY.’..Will u wear it..?”

or

“If you are a boy and someone offers you a set of skirt and bikney…Will ypu accept it ..?”

The same case arises on our home tooo…. As we can’t live our life on the others identity similarly we can’t live in the other’s house..your house is your’s ,it is fit for your’s personality…We all have our own identity which is represented by our outfits…

Why their mindset are set so… ? either they don’t read books or they are much more stick to the serials like saas -bahu and so which is degrading the minds of people slowly and slowly.

Also ,this might be the reason that only a little population are reaching to the designers in our country .I think that there is a yet a large more distance to travel for our country to get the full freedom from this mindset.

Some might have a large questions in their minds that Architects are too expensive to hire ..!! Yes this is true we are expensive.But they don’t see that they are not spending but they are investing for their ownself in all aspects-MONEY , HEALTH , LIFESTYLE

  • MONEY as you save a lot in energy efficiency of building, a lot on faulty construction and also a building which is made well designed functionally,they can be sold on a good prices than any average building
  • HEALTH as you are going to build a healthy habits and this bring psychological and a physical well being too, as written by Napoleon Hill in his book’THINK AND GROW RICH’
  • LIFESTYLE you will easily achieve

So there is a need to clear it from ground.There should be more awareness programmes among people.They should be taught about its importance .Also, not only for Architecture but for all fields there should be courses for students, so that they can explore and find fields of their interest for their future and for this country .As the Taj Mahal is holding the identity, in same way our people should also have their IDENTITY.

Why to hire an Architect..?

After Civillisation, the whole world has changed.The people got more civillised ,they started to accumulate their comfort .They give rise to beautiful art of piece “home”.As there is limited land resource on earth and the population is increasing rapidly. Thus,there is a need for the one who by his creativity finds the best solution for any problem.

Architects have the ability to transform the life on this planet.By the vast knowledge of human psychology their cultures and traditions they convert the place into best 3D space for living.They understand the history and plan for future and makes the best out of it.

As for the covid19 like emergency all over the world their is a more need for the flexible buildings and adaptive techniques https://www.dezeen.com/2020/04/20/daily-coronavirus-architecture-design-briefing-20-april/ As seen in this article their is a more need for such buildings .

Moreover on a personal scale ,it saves a large amount of money when you hire an proffessional for your home..it saves a lot during the construction as well as in future energy requirements for your energy demands.An architect has an large amount of knowledge and experience about the site and also the climatic conditions air movement and alll.

“the space you spend time in transform your personality”

by Utkarsh Mishra

Its well said as the fortunes are build by habits and these habits are guided by the set of regular activities. These activities are decided by the space in which you are living .So why to give up on it…? why to loose your fortunes ..?

They give the best services for your demands ,by spending a large time in solving your problems .Just as a mother they feed clients with all the strategies ,construction techniques,ideas materials and economical ways for your buildings,homes,shops and any other form to be built.

Moreover they create the best use of land by making it more spacious as well as also to convert it into more multi functional . Thus future is in the hands of yours, weather u make a house on your own old knowledge or to make it more substainable , ecofriendly and energy efficient .Moreover it saves your large sum of money and also transforms your life..!!!
