Architectural Design is about planning, designing and constructing buildings and other physical structures. Architectural designers create functional and practical spaces in urban and rural settings using many different materials.
Modern architecture demands in-depth knowledge in mathematics, engineering, arts, science, and technology for designers to understand how structures work, the characteristics of materials and forms, and so on. The success of an architectural design is gauged from a building’s beauty, firmness, and utility.
Architectural design involves the following core activities: sketching freehand or creating a preliminary design, schematic designing of laying out mechanical, electrical, plumbing, structural, and architectural details, creating construction documents.
Architectural designers are mostly employed in agencies that offer architectural, engineering and related services industry.
The Role of CAD & BIM
Architectural designers use CAD to compile layouts, design conceptual elements, components and systems like windows, doors, interior partitions, floor finishes and complete entire design drawings. CAD software allows designers to work on complex engineering details and analyze the proposed structure’s tolerances and weaknesses.
Building Information Modeling (BIM), a recent generation of CAD software, enables architects to model an intelligent 3D model-based process that equips architecture, engineering, and construction professionals with the insight and tools to more efficiently plan, design, construct, and manage buildings and infrastructure.
