Believe us or believe us not, but when it comes to attracting the ladies, male architects have an advantage over doctors, stockbrokers and even firefighters. Based on a survey conducted
by a UK introduction agency, Drawing Down The Moon, architects were picked as the sexiest male professionals. According to the women surveyed, the oomph factor comes from the esteem associated with this venerable profession. The RIBA president David Rock noted that architects tend to be unaware of this animal magnetism, with self images that fail to match this public appreciation. However Alicia Pivaro – director of the RIBA Architectural Gallery and married to architect Paul Monaghan – sweetly begs to differ. Men on the other hand selected PR executives as the sexiest profession for females, followed by actresses and journalists.
