What inspired you to become an architect, and how did you get started in the industry?

Entering this field began with the process of learning architecture by enrolling myself for a B. Arch degree after my schooling. But I began by learning from ancient architecture. I am drawn towards historical structures like the Agra Fort and the Jaisalmer Fort. Whatever they would build, it was planned and built in a way that made it last for centuries. My source of inspiration is Hafeez Contractor — he is the master of our field, and he is energetic. The play of form in his architecture is most inspiring.
