The AIA describes architecture as being like a three-legged stool that is held up by business, design, and construction.
All three of these things have to come together for architecture to hapen.
Check out this video real quick describing the idea:
(Great! Glad you watched that. It’s a fundamental understanding of what goes into practicing architecture successfully. And if you are new to all this, it’s a simple idea that is important to unserstand.)
The idea makes sense.
You need a client to build for, or why are you doing it?
You need financial backing to make it happen.
You need to have a plan.
You need someone to build it.
So if you are majoring in architecture and trying to decide on a minor, it would be a great idea to consider something like business or construction management. It will make you more well-rounded and give you an understanding of the other things at play in the world of architecture.
