Just wondering but is any anime character or anything else related to architecture? It may sound weird but this came to my mind and I cant stop thinking about it.

I don't know of any character who was an architect but I did find this article about real architects whose work have appeared in anime.   Neo Tokyo3. Architecture in Manga and Anime.  I know that the Fuji TV building which has a very unique look has appeared in a lot of anime.  Another is Tokyo Big Sight and obviously Tokyo Tower.  I don't think it's too unusual for architectural landmarks to be represented in anime.

Great stuff! since I´m studying  architecture I wondered in which many ways it could be related to anime! good to think these buildings inspired other artists in their work and that it turn out into one of my other passions, anime.

@ronat1:
A little googling and I found two manga-ka who studied architecture:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tsukasa_Hojo  
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tsutomu_Nihei

Yuu Matsuura (whose entry appears to be completely empty) dreamed of being an architect in the manga/anime Marmalade Boy, but I'm not sure of anyone who actually was one.

I took a look for both of them and made my own little research of them. I found that actually Tsukasa didn't study architecture at all, he really studied art and design, but Tsutomu did study architecture. My impression from his drawings is that he shows a great sense of space and really cares about the atmosphere that the landscape and buildings create. I think its kind of plus to their drawings, and  I had the same impression with one of my favorite comic illustrator, Gabriel Rodriguez, who studied architect as well.
