Architects design spaces and buildings to satisfy daily needs and improve the environment in which we live. They need abilities and skills that range from the practical to the artistic and from the technical to the theoretical. As professionals they conceptualise, design and document building projects and oversee quality control during construction.

Architects can manage their own practices or work for other, often, multidisciplinary firms, or can make contributions to the government sector and education.
