Sep 23, 2013 - The word "architect" derives from an ancient Greek word "arkhitekton" and
translates to "chief builder". The word 'engineer' obviously has something
to do with engines which etymologically is less ancient (approx 1300's).
While Engineers work with a completely different set of design factors
which are more quantitative than qualitative, architects do have a sound
knowledge of construction and are quite capable of ensuring that buildings
Sep 23, 2013 - In many ways, architects design how a building stands up, and engineers
ensure that it will.

Mar 12, 2012 - @howtoarchitect Good point, you're correct about finding your niche and
excelling in it. Regarding taste, there's a neat building where I live that
a lady hates because it reminds her of a workhouse she saw in her childhood
town in England! That's a factor that hasn't a thing to do w/ aesthetics,
it's a personal association, and an irrational one at that. I believe
associations are more important to most people than mere aesthetics.
Mar 12, 2012 - nice video Doug
Apr 10, 2012 - Great.. be exceptional.. Commercialism it is.
Mar 12, 2012 - @AwesomeCoasters Try hanging out in the architecture section of the
bookstore in the rich part of town. When someone starts looking at
architecture books, chat them up. They may be a person looking to build a
house. I enjoy hanging out at bookstores in my spare time and I've met
people that way.

Mar 21, 2012 - When you decided to become an architect, did you take a bacholar of arts
approach then specialized into architecture degree afterwards, or did you
go to a university for an architecture degree? Those are the only two
options I know of.

Apr 17, 2012 - "Trial by fire", I remember that saying from last Sunday's Bible Study.
Jesus said that we (the Christians) would be tried by fire and become the
purest gold. Great Vid Doug! You always know what you're talking about.
Mar 13, 2012 - I actually believe in no.8 , even though im just a student, it was proven
to me that with money, you may have exception . . . But i know God has plan
for those who works hard.
Mar 13, 2012 - WHAT'S A SUCCESSFUL ARCHITECT?
Mar 14, 2012 - @bulshoibooze Yes there is lots more freedom in architecture, engineers
check our work :P
Mar 12, 2012 - Hey dough, i have been subscribed for a while now but i need to ask, since
i moght want to become an architect: have you ever been in or close to
financial problem; paying your bills, food, debt etc.

Jul 20, 2013 - Could you be more general?
Mar 12, 2012 - @sammelief1 yes!
Mar 13, 2012 - @irritablearchitect I understand staying put right now in this crummy
economy, but you need to figure out what you really want out of your career
and take action to get it. Your boss may be taking advantage of you, but
you let him. An architect friend of mine was underpaid at a good sized,
reputable firm. He took a PART TIME job w/ a landscape architecture firm
and got more money! He's moved on from that now, but it just shows that
some firms don't share the wealth as well as others.

Jul 14, 2013 - Hi, I want to become an architect, right now im in my 10 year at school and
i have taken the subjects: Physics, Math, EM and i practice art by myself.
I would like to know what is should practice now in order to have a strong
foundation while pursuing my career as an architect. Please help!! Thankyou
Oct 12, 2012 - Once I finish architecture I intend to study civil engineering as well. So
I can make my own ideas come true without having someone to interrupt it.
But most times in this job it's better to have a team.

Apr 13, 2013 - Hi Mr. Doug. :) This year I'm going to College, and I decided to pursue an
Architecture degree. Honestly, I'm still not sure if this was the course
that I wanted to pursue, mainly because I do better in Physics and in
English than Math. Yet I have the passion for house designs. Do you think I
could become like you when I graduate? Can you give me some tips, I don't
want to spend my time and money with something I am not sure of. I'd really
appreciate it if you respond. :) Thanks!

Jun 2, 2012 - Architects are generalists, they consider almost all aspects that that the
building surrounds, from design; accounting of project; co relation of
electrical, sanitary, plumbing, electronics, mechanical, structural
engineering; Building codes to meet the standards for the project; effect
of the project in its surroundings e.g. traffic, crime generator, fire
prevention; Estimate; Selection of efficient contractor; and most of all
the client's demand meets and pleases him.
