Architecture is a passion, a vocation, a calling – as well as a science and a business. It has been described as a social art and also an artful science. Architecture must be of the highest quality of design. Architecture provides, in the words of Marcus Vitruvius, the great Roman architect and historian, “firmness, commodity, and delight.” Architectural design is a discipline that focuses on covering and meeting the needs and demands, to create living spaces, using certain tools and especially, creativity. Therefore, the aim is to combine the technological and the aesthetic, despite the general belief that architecture is only a technological task.
Architecture provides a sense of place and support for all types of human activity. Architecture helps the man-made fit in harmony with the environment while promoting health and well-being, enriching lives aesthetically and spiritually, providing economic opportunities, and creating a legacy that reflects and symbolizes culture and traditions.

What do they do?
An architect is more or less a “translator” between the homeowner and builder. Often homeowners get lost in the “archispeak” which causes information to get lost or overlooked. An architect deciphers what the client wants in terms the builder understands.
An architect might be dealing with the city for the first hour of the day, acquiring or researching necessary permits for a project. Then they might do design work for the next two hours, drafting up documents. Later, they may schedule a meeting with you or do initial consultations with new clients.
