5 software that helps you survive in B.Arch !!!
A bachelor’s degree in architecture is a 5-year long process and it isn’t definitely an ice-cake walk. Endless submissions, deadline struggles, sleepless nights, counts to a few among the many other issues an architectural student faces during college days.
Architecture is a vast field and it is definitely one among the industries that cannot be kept aside for any matter. Though we tend to correlate architecture with beautifully designed homes, buildings and structures, it has come a long way apart from the designing and constructing aspect of the process.
As decades pass by, the extend of technology used in the A&D industry started rising bit by bit and now we are almost on the verge of a paperless era of architecture, even though the technology was welcomed cold-hearted in the Indian A&D industry initially. A futuristic perspective of introspection makes it very evident that future architects have a major role in the development of the country and in promoting sustainable architecture. Technology is one of the affordable pleasures created by a man and the growing influence of technology in the A&D industry is no more a hidden factor.
