This second responsibility requires architects to be licensed by the state, which they work.
The job begins with learning what the client wants.
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.
The architect takes many factors into consideration, including local and state building and design regulations, climate, soil on which the building is to be constructed, zoning laws, fire regulations, and the client’s financial limitations.
After discussing and agreeing on the initial with clients, architects develop final construction plans that show the building’s appearance and details construction.
Architecture is the designing and construction of buildings.
Every era that the human civilization has gone through, in its inexorable progress into the future, has been marked by its own unique architecture, attesting to the craftsmanship of its people. Architecture is art because a building that is constructed is an expression of the imagination and creativity of whoever is involved in its design.
As the practice has evolved, it is argued here, they have crafted a new strategy: the horizontal plane as vertical facade generator.
In its progression the practice has deviated from facade ornamentation and fabrication towards the removal of the facade altogether; allowing for the floor plate — as a visual element — to operate as inadvertent facade and thus doubling its structural and visual importance.
