Surveying or land surveying is the technique and science of accurately determining the terrestrial or three-dimensional position of points and the distances and angles between them. These points are usually on the surface of the Earth, and they are often used to establish land maps and boundaries for ownership or governmental purposes. In order to accomplish their objective, surveyors use elements of geometry, engineering, trigonometry, mathematics, physics, and law.
An architect is trained and licensed in the planning and designing of buildings, and participates in supervising the construction of a building. Etymologically, architect derives from the Latin architectus, itself derived from the Greek arkhitekton (arkhi-, chief + tekton, builder), i.e. chief builder. A looser usage of Architect is: the translator of the building user's requirements of and from a building into an inhabitable environment.
Technical drawing, also known as drafting, is the academic discipline of creating standardized technical drawings by architects, interior designers, drafters, design engineers, and related professionals. Standards and conventions for layout, line thickness, text size, symbols, view projections, descriptive geometry, dimensioning, and notation are used to create drawings that are ideally interpreted in only one way. A person who does drafting is known as a drafter.
A Project Architect is a term used to define a specific role in an Architect's office. The Project Architect (PA) role usually indicates the individual who is responsible for overseeing the Architectural aspects of the development of the design, production of the construction documents and specifications.
Architectural conservation describes the process through which the material, historical, and design integrity of mankind's built heritage are prolonged through carefully planned interventions. The individual engaged in this pursuit is known as an architectural conservator. Decisions of when and how to engage in an intervention are critical to the ultimate conservation of the immovable object.
Intern architect is a term often used to describe a person who has successfully completed a professional and accredited degree in Architecture (5-year B. Arch or 1-5-year M. Arch) and is studying for the professional licensure exam. Many American states and Canadian provinces prohibit the use of the word "Architect" (or any derivation there of) from any person not already licensed to practice Architecture.
The Architectural Technologist, also known as a Building Technologist, provides building design services and solutions and is trained in architectural technology, building design and construction. They apply the science of architecture and typically concentrate on the technology of building design and construction. They can or may negotiate the construction project, and manage the process from conception through to completion.
In systems engineering, the systems architect is the high-level designer of a system to be implemented. The systems architect establishes the basic structure of the system, defining the essential core design features and elements that provide the framework for all that follows, and are the hardest to change later.
A theatre consultant is a consultant who specializes in the design of facilities for the performing arts, equipment for those facilities and the operation of theatre. Professional consultants provide unbiased, functionally sound, practical consulting and design services for performance and public assembly facilities of all kinds. Architects and owners use their expertise to program, plan and help with the construction of these kinds of complicated buildings.
A building inspection is performed by a person who is employed by either a city, township or county and is usually certified in one or more disciplines, either as a residential or commercial building inspector, a plumbing, electrical or mechanical inspector or other specialty to inspect structures at different stages of completion. Most building inspectors employed by governments are certified by the State or the International Code Council (ICC).
Hugo Ball (February 22, 1886 – September 14, 1927) was a German author, poet and one of the leading Dada artists. Hugo Ball was born in Pirmasens, Germany and was raised in a Catholic family. He studied sociology and philosophy at the universities of Munich and Heidelberg (1906–1907). In 1910, he moved to Berlin in order to become an actor and collaborated with Max Reinhardt.
Flavonoids (or bioflavonoids), also collectively known as Vitamin P and citrin, are a class of plant secondary metabolites. According to the IUPAC nomenclature, they can be classified into: flavonoids, derived from 2-phenylchromen-4-one structure. isoflavonoids, derived from 3-phenylchromen-4-one structure neoflavonoids, derived from 4-phenylcoumarine structure. The three flavonoid classes above are all ketone-containing compounds, and as such, are flavonoids and flavonols.
