Architecture is one of the most influential professions in society. Its a fascinating field that blends art, culture, science, technology and even elements of business. 

Architects work with building contractors, engineers, tradespeople, lawyers, accountants and just about anyone involved in delivering a building project. As well as taking care of the design process, they play an important advisory role for their clients.
