About Architecture study

Why Architecture studies

Architecture (Latin architectura, from the Greek ?????????? arkhitekton "architect", from ????- "chief" and ?????? "builder") is both the process and the product of planning, designing, and constructing buildings and other physical structures.

Architectural works, in the material form of buildings, are often perceived as cultural symbols and as works of art. Historical civilizations are often identified with their surviving architectural achievements. "Architecture" can mean:

• A general term to describe buildings and other physical structures.

• The art and science of designing buildings and (some) nonbuilding structures.

• The style of design and method of construction of buildings and other physical structures. • A unifying or coherent form or structure.

• Knowledge of art, science, technology, and humanity.

• The design activity of the architect, from the macro-level (urban design, landscape architecture) to the micro-level (construction details and furniture). The practice of the architect, where architecture means offering or rendering professional services in connection with the design and construction of buildings, or built environments. What Architects Do ? Architects plan and design houses, factories, office buildings, and other structures. Duties of Architects Architects typically do the following:

• Meet with clients to determine objectives and requirements for structures

• Give preliminary estimates on cost and construction time

• Prepare structure specifications

• Direct workers who prepare drawings and documents

• Prepare scaled drawings, either with computer software or by hand

• Prepare contract documents for building contractors

• Manage construction contracts

• Visit worksites to ensure that construction adheres to architectural plans

• Seek new work by marketing and giving presentations People need places to live, work, play, learn, shop, and eat. Architects are responsible for designing these places. They work on public or private projects and design both indoor and outdoor spaces.

Architects can be commissioned to design anything from a single room to an entire complex of buildings. Architects discuss the objectives, requirements, and budget of a project with clients.

In some cases, architects provide various predesign services, such as feasibility and environmental impact studies, site selection, cost analyses, and design requirements. Architects develop final construction plans after discussing and agreeing on the initial proposal with clients. These plans show the building’s appearance and details of its construction.

Accompanying these plans are drawings of the structural system; air-conditioning, heating, and ventilating systems; electrical systems; communications systems; and plumbing.

Sometimes, landscape plans are included as well. In developing designs, architects must follow state and local building codes, zoning laws, fire regulations, and other ordinances, such as those requiring easy access to buildings for people who are disabled.

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 required, especially during the conceptual stages of a project and when an architect is at a construction site.

As construction continues, architects may visit building sites to ensure that contractors follow the design, adhere to the schedule, use the specified materials, and meet work-quality standards. The job is not complete until all construction is finished, required tests are conducted, and construction costs are paid.
