I am an architect and real people don’t hire architects………? Of course I do get hired. It is just a hunch. I am also a medium everyday person who might show up in a grocery, car wash or library anywhere on the planet, in short, a real person. I have pondered the title question to the point of starting this blog. Historically an architect is someone, as am I, who designs and builds physical things. Today our world is full to bursting with buildings of every sort, yet the main architects in evidence are designing computer systems or political strategies. Have real architects gone into hiding?
As an architect and principal of Gaddis Architect, I am perplexed and often surprised, not only by how my profession is perceived by the non architectural public, but also by how little is generally understood about what we really do. I have started this blog to demonstrate what real everyday architects bring to a project; how their contribution adds extraordinary value for very often little cost, and why their employment is vital. Please scroll on, comment, and contact me anytime.
