Architects focus on the interaction of people, environments, and constructed spaces. They plan, design, and construct multi-disciplinary concepts and solutions for living, working, and our social and cultural lives.

Through their work, architects shape and influence our environment with lasting effect. On the basis of technical, creative, and economic factors, they develop innovative ideas and ensure the planning and implementation of construction projects. They are also responsible for ensuring construction quality and monitoring the schedule and budget.
