As we all know friends that architecture is a very vast subject and everyone has different views about it....What do you feel..? Is it all about money or about passion..In my case, its all about money with a little bit of passion (with no commitment)..{hope someday it will start being of my interest but not for now.}

I know its not very good..but what about you..?

Yes my friend, it is not very good at all if you are doing architecture only for money. Money is also important but what is most important is the passion and commiment that you have for it.

There are so many ways to earn money. But only architecture is the place where u can earn money with passion. May be a person who is not an architect can earn more money but only an architect can earn money with passion....

One more thing i would like to add on my comment, architect can give a new look to a place.

So, most important thing to do is something new and to make good contribution to its own place.

A person who has passion for something when he finds his utmost pleasure in doing that thing....that is not only about architecture..it is about every thing..if you have passion about something then you will not need money..because you are satisfied by your work...people need money when they don't know what passion they have...

Doing something that you love the most is passion......... and while fulfilling this passion there is satisfaction.... and if satisfaction is achieved....... you reach great heights in terms of everything may it be money etc. so its entirely your call on it. Do what you like first and then you'll like what you do automatically.....Wink

Both. Money and passion. If I don't find a work interesting then I wouldn't be continuing it further and if the work doesn't pay me a good income then again I won't be continuing it anymore. For me its both passion and money.

One more thing, if anyone finds both money and passion in ones work then it is the best work in the world that one can find.

You can be a true architect only if you take it as your passion.......

Money makes you compromise your design...!!!!!!

 see i happened to meet BV Doshi some months ago....we were just talking about Why to pursue architecture?---He had come to our college as a guest lecturer....The first thing he told me was that if u want earn money sell potatoes on the streets, forget architecture.Have u heard Peter Eisenman ever ......he emphasizes on one thing when it comes to money.....he never tells students to pursue architecture unless he is extremely passionate about him.......his son,a lawyer ,earns more than he ever did for forty years..........and these are the real architects themselves.......Tadao Ando would have continued to drive cars the way he used to do during his childhood days,by now he would have created a car Agency and would have minted lakhs.........but this PASSION brought him to architecture and not his greed for money...............Passion would any time win over money........................any if money is your aim,why the hell architecture.....do MBA,get a job,get paid and live life like a king,....why to go through five years of hard work,then again 5-10 years of slogging and then u just might settle up..............why go thru all this.?????????
