ARCHITECTURE

Architect

Plan and Design the Structures Around You

A person who designs buildings and often supervises construction projects.

People need places to live, work, play, learn, shop, and eat. Architects are responsible for designing these places and spaces. They work on various kinds of projects and design both indoor and outdoor spaces. Architects can be hired to design anything from a single room to an entire complex of buildings.

Architects help determine the objectives, requirements, and budget of a project with clients. In some cases, architects provide various pre-design services, such as feasibility and environmental impact studies, site selection, cost analyses, and design requirements.

Computer-aided design and drafting (CADD) and building information modeling (BIM) have replaced traditional drafting paper and pencil as the most common methods for creating designs and construction drawings. However, hand-drawing skills are still used, especially during the conceptual stages of a project.

Architects often collaborate with workers in related occupations, such as civil engineers, urban and regional planners, interior designers, and landscape architects.
