Architecture

What makes the Architect so important


Architecture can be defined as the art of designing and organizing
space. According to Vítruvio, the architecture is based on three
fundamental principles: the beauty (Venustas), the construction
(Firmitas) and the function (Utilitas).

Architecture is an artistic component, involving several dimensions
or areas of knowledge: a technical aspect, capable of conforming
to regulation; a constructive dimension, through the embodiment
with materials and constructive techniques adapted to the requirements
of use and comfort of spaces; a human dimension fulfilling the expectations
of its users; and a local dimension, since the same object undergoes
adaptations to the place where it is inserted. It is constantly evolving,
since history shows us that each civilization has determined a way of
conceiving and organizing public and private spaces.


What does the Architect do?

Imagine these three situations:

- Idealized your home or workspace but dont know
where to start? 
- You are a terrain and you dont know its viability? 
- You have a limited budget to build your house? 


Well, have you imagined? Still good, it is up to the architect to design an
aesthetically harmonious object taking care of all these conditions. His work
covers various scales: from an object, such as a piece of furniture or equipment
(interior architecture), through public and private buildings, to urbanization or
city planning (urban planning).


In short, the architect is responsible for the architectural design of a building,
for its sustainability and integrates in its project the various specialties (performed
by other professionals): stability (concrete), water and sewage, thermal, electrical design,
gas, acoustics , among others. It is the technician who accompanies from birth the first
draft until the moment of putting the key in the door.
