Architecture starts with analyzing the existing conditions, listening to the client's needs, researching the situation, and helping the owner or client develop a criteria or "program" from which a feasible design solution can be derived.
"Plan the work, work the plan". Architecture is an every-evolving process, soliciting and incorporating ideas from stakeholders, occupants, builders, engineers, developers, material suppliers, agencies and consultants.
Nothing gets built until it is presented in a form others can understand and support. Architects help clients present their ideas to others to help both convey and convince the client's concept and viability.
What is Architecture?
Architecture is more than just lines on a piece of paper needed to obtain a building permit. Architecture is a process to help owners realize and achieve their dreams and building goals. Architects by nature are problem-solvers, part artist, part engineer and part behavioral scientists. Successful projects start with Architects who help the owner analyze their needs (programming), create possible solutions (planning), and convey (present) the owner's visions to others for purposes of marketing to building construction.
Architecture is not limited to just buildings, but all forms of space planning from urban planning to interior design, from site layout to landscaping, from innovative solutions to historical preservation.
