By Small Medium Architectural Practice Committee (SMAP), Singapore Institute of Architects (SIA)

Who is an Architect? What are their responsibilities? When do you need to appoint an Architect? Why is appointing an Architect important for homeowners.

Architects can be broadly understood as being responsible for the built environment in modern society. They pour their creativity into designing the spaces that we live, work and play in. Their technical drawings determine and guide the construction processes. The modern Architect today is also deeply involved in complying with relevant authorities, building codes and contract law.

WHY ARCHITECT? provides us all with an understanding of what Architects really do and how they go about their Professional Practice assuming a range of multi-faceted roles and responsibilities.

Do come by and join us for WHY ARCHITECT?, it promises to be an interesting and informative time of sharing and learning. There will also be a short and informal free consultation led by several professional Architects for homeowners at the end of the session.
