What is an Architect?

An architect is a licensed professional, as are physicians and attorneys. In Vermont, individuals must hold a license to legally practice architecture or call themselves architects. Architects are the only professionals in a construction project who are required to represent the building owner's interests.

At right is more on the services and assistance architects provide.

AIA also has information on their How Design Works page.
