{ Background }

In our modern age, we are constantly adapting to the dynamism in our fields through multifaceted ways. One of its positive outcomes, especially in the field of architecture and design has been the increase in the number of alternative careers opportunities for an architect. There has never before been a time where one can witness such a diverse set of architects and designers. This has certainly elicited a new wave of multifaceted architects towards the re-birth of the contemporary renaissance.

Silk Matters is proud to inaugurate the first Architecture Affiliate Awards to recognize the renaissance architects of our times. In a more nuanced sense, to promote the affiliated career opportunities for architects who want to do more than architecture and recognize the many talents architects acquire through the course of becoming one.

 

A person with many talents or areas of knowledge.

 

Renaissance man, also called Universal Man, (Italian: Uomo Universale) an ideal that developed in Renaissance Italy from the notion expressed by Leon Battista Alberti (1404–72), that “a man can do all things if he will.” The ideal embodied the basic tenets of Renaissance humanism, which considered man the centre of the universe, limitless in his capacities for development, and led to the notion that men should try to embrace all knowledge and develop their own capacities as fully as possible.
