Alansari Architecture

Many people are afraid of taking up architecture because they think you have to be a wizard at Math or a Van Gogh in the art to succeed. While you should be good in both, you don’t have to be genius or a prodigy. Your Architect skills list should include the usual set of competencies but the most important one is something you develop throughout your entire life: Problem Solving. Architects should know how to calculate square footages but not structural load balances. That is the engineer’s job.

Our opportunity, as designers, is to learn how to handle the complexity, rather than shy away from it, and to realize that the big art of design is to make complicated things simple.
