Learn professional drawing and become an architect!
Architecture is the technical and esthetical pursuit of the subject of built space. The focus of being an architect is on methodical design and construction of buildings. Esthetics and functionality are the main aspects. It all starts with a blank sheet of paper – your first ideas are outlined in form of a sketch and then artistically refined. A 3D object is created using a 2D medium.
The craft of visualizing your ideas must be perfected in order to become a successful architect. The basics of professional painting and drawing must be learned before starting your studies. Working with perspectives, spatial representation, shapes, colors, light and shadow must be your second nature. We can help you learning all these skills to stand out as an architect!

As an architect, you must have the following skills: Creativity, artistic aptitude, good spatial perception, abstract thinking, discipline, physics and math, technical and commercial insight.

Job als Architekt
Your job as an architect
Many architects start their own business. You will e.g. work as a construction manager, project leader, property developer, location auditor or maybe as an environmental analyst. Your clients will be cities and districts, industry leaders, architect offices or housing associations. You may be starting as a local, down-to-earth architect, but there’s a chance for you to have a career in the international field of architecture. Just like Sir William Chambers, Gustave Eiffel, Leon Battista Alberti or Zaha Hadid!
