Architects work in design, planning and construction of various types of buildings and structures, ranging from residential buildings to commercial ones or public facilities. They are responsible for designing buildings that meet the needs of people who are going to use them, and in harmony with the environment in the most comfortable, healthy, safe, and economic ways. They have the chance to work in public sector such as ministries or municipalities, or architecture departments of public institutions. They also can work in private sector architecture and construction firms or become self-employed by establishing their own businesses. During design and construction of a building, architects need to be in contact with the clients and users, and many different professionals including civil, electric and mechanical engineers, urban designers, landscape designers, interior designers, contractors and technical staff.
