In architecture, the person who develops, plans, designs and reviews the construction of buildings is known as the architect. The verb practice architecture means to develop services which are related to the design of buildings and the space within the site around those structures, which are occupied primarily by individuals.
To be professional, architects have to attend training programmes and earn a license as their decision may affect the public safety.
To achieve the position of professional architects, people have to satisfy different requirements, which may vary from place to place. However, the three most common elements architects should have are: having a university degree or advanced education, being trained through internships, and succeeding in the examination to register with a jurisdiction.
As well as this, to practice architecture implies that the architect can perform his/her task without a supervision with a licence. However, in different places, independent and non-licensed people can perform design services without having professional restrictions.
The term architect dates back to the 16th century. Architects, as professionals, have started becoming popular in Italy during the Renaissance period, as well as when in 1550 Giorgio Vasari published ’the lives of the most excellent painters, sculptors and architects’. Then, the discipline has spread to France.
