Architecturesplay an important role in as far as planning of major infrastructuralprojects is concerned. However, there is a challenging characteristicof these mega projects because they are expected to serve for a longtime and hence its features have to accommodate the variousdemographic, climatic and other environmental changes expected totake place during this period. This is what makes the work ofarchitectures very difficult in as much as making a plan for aproject is concerned because the decision they make would affect thetest of time. For such work to remain relevant, at least, the designof the architectural work have to serve the intended purpose over itsexpected lifetime (Osmani,Glass &amp Price, 2008).

Nevertheless,architectures need to understand all the above factors before theymake their decision so that they can serve to be remembered inhistory. One of the things that they should first consider is theexpected population growth. For instance in the case of a city, thepopulation increase is expected to affect the traffic of a city andsufficient land ought to be left to cover for roads expansion,sewerage handling and also land for settlement (Bunz, Henze &ampTiller, 2006). Architectures have to understand the changes intechnology and other requirements and provide a smooth path ofincorporating these developments in the architecture. These mayinclude fitting like internet connectivity cables and pay television(Lechner,2014).Architectures are also expected to ensure that the land has been usedeconomically to avoid waste but be passable and organized to supportthe movement. The land is a very useful resources that should beoptimized for its use. Architectures should avoid events that mayrequire demolition of their projects due to poor planning. That way,an architecture is likely to stay relevant and stand the test of time(Williams,2007).
