A Brief History of Architecture
An architect is a person who engages and studies in the profession of architecture. Architects is a person who underwent training and is licensed to plan, design, devise, and oversee the concept and construction of all types of buildings and he or she accomplishes this through their drafting services.
Practicing architecture is a meticulous job because an architect has to make and meet services in connection with the aim, plan, and construction of the buildings. They will also have to be aware of the regulations that need to be met in order for construction of the building to go ahead.
Architects have to meet stick education requirements with an undergraduate and sometimes post graduate degree. Alongside this, an architect will have to undertake an internship that offers practical experience to become fully licensed architects. In most countries you are a licensed architect, there are usually different tiers of experience that are responsible for different areas of a building for their firm. Architects are required to register with the appropriate jurisdiction and complete a number of Continued Professional Development courses each year.
Science, Engineering and Aesthetics
The Architect must have the ability to create a design concept that meets the requirements of the client and must continually meet with and question the client’s requirement of the proposed plan. Throughout a project, the architect forms and cooperates with a design team, structural, mechanical, and electrical engineers and other specialists.
Architects and Architecture
During the construction, Architects put up projects to call for bids on behalf of their clients, negotiate with the general contractor about the design, and constantly review and participate in the progress of the work done during the construction.
Architects provide construction contract administration. In a lot of jurisdictions, mandatory certification or assurance of the work is strictly required. Recent decades have seen the rise of different specialisations within the architectural profession.
Other Architects choose to specialise upon building code, building envelope, sustainable design, technical writing, historic preservation or conservation, accessibility and other forms of reliable specialist consultants.
Architecture and Drafting Services occupies a peculiar place in the life of an architect. Drafting services are essential in architecture and some of the best buildings constructed were conceptualised through the architects and/or architectural firms.
Examples of great engineering feats that came from the ultra-imaginative minds of modern architects include the Petronas Towers in Malaysia, the Burj Khalifa Tower in Dubai, The Falkirk Wheel in Scotland, the Akashi Kaikyo suspension bridge in Hyogo, Japan and the Shipka Church in Bulgaria.
Architects provide an endless array of design concepts utilising their skills to bring the desired outcome of a building. Restoration and repair works for old buildings require extensive drafting services and design concepts too. There is no end to the use of the architect’s drafting services and skills in an ever-changing landscape, the world will always need new buildings.
Some architects are also structural engineers.
Some architects are pushing for green engineering and green living, thus they’ve created vertical farming facilities and green energy efficient infrastructures from their concept design services.
The effects of global warming have also revolutionised the way architects design buildings and it seems that their designs are polarised on providing energy efficient structures.
Eco-living is also inspired and some people want architects to design their houses to incorporate a mini forest inside and outside their homes. It was coined as “pro-nature living,” and has gained traction and influence for which they even called landscape artists as well interior designers to help with the architectural design.
