what is the life of an architect like?
There is no simple way to respond to this, and no way to summarize all the different things that all architects do. We basically spend our days resolving problems in creative and innovative ways.
But the term “architect” is used to encompass many types of architects. Architects in larger firms tend to specialize in two ways (smaller firms tend to have architects that play more than one of these). First by role in a project/office. There are designers, planners, technical, managers, business developers, and others depending on the firm focus. Second by typology. There are residential, commercial, education, healthcare, institutional and many other types of architects.
