ARCHITECTURE

Architecture is described as “the art and science of designing and erecting buildings and other physical structures.”

Architects are responsible for changing the face of the places in which we live and work. To be able to contribute to such a vast aspect of society is a privilege but also extremely hard work. The profession creates a real chance to make substantial visual changes to our surroundings.

Architecture is generally considered one of the most progressive careers there is and industry will constantly be looking to improve current standards and implement cutting edge design to future projects.

Looking back over old buildings and constructions is a way to find out about the past. Over hundreds of years architects have aided and built the environment that surrounded people at the time. Architects, by their very nature, put up historical information in their designs and buildings which can be seen all over the United Kingdom and the world over.

Architects are in no way limited to building new and expensive buildings; they will also be involved with any extensions, refurbishments, infrastructure and interiors and need to possess a general understanding of space and the effect their work will have on the immediate area.

Every building from the tiniest village hall to Canary Wharf has been designed and constructed with the help of an architect or, in many cases, a team of architects. Their importance and range of roles cannot be underestimated.
