When an architecture firm builds a reputation as a successful, profitable company in the industry, it may see an increase in work. A notable firm may also heighten its chances of earning a high-profile job to construct a significant structure.
Recently, Development Design Group Incorporated (DDG) was chosen as the architecture firm to construct the retail centerpiece of the Tianjin City Culture Center Development, located in Beijing, China. The company, which is based in Baltimore, Maryland, will participate in planning and developing what will soon become the largest mall in the country.
"We are thrilled that our creative vision for a genre-defying retail concept is moving forward," said Ahsin Rasheed, a DDG representative. "The opportunity to be part of this celebrated assemblage of award-winning architects and designers is a real honor."
The 4-million-square-foot shopping complex will have seven levels when it is completed. It will be a part of a 9-million-square-foot commercial district, designed for shoppers and small business owners alike.
Employment in architecture is projected to increase by 16 percent over the next seven years, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The opportunity to construct landmark buildings may encourage more individuals to embark on a career in the field.
