Architects help create the buildings and environment where we live, learn, work and play.

In designing homes, schools, offices, churches, apartments and skyscrapers, architects serve society not just by designing functional, attractive, and safe structures, but also by creating livable communities.

Architects are concerned not only with the laws and regulations governing the practice of architecture, but also with a wide range of issues that affect our community. Issues that are central to the health and safety of our citizens, the long-term well-being of our environment, and the prosperity of our economy.
