An architect is a person who designs buildings. They design how the building is going to look, both inside and outside, but also the infrastructure of the building and how the building will be used. To practice architecture means to engage with the spatial practices that make up our lives, and work to create buildings that serve a purpose in the best way possible. Today, the most well known global architects are often referred to as 'starchitects'—architects who have received international renown for their style of design. They have often constructed many buildings globally, and are commissioned for new feature buildings such as National Museums, or sports stadiums.  These architects are akin to celebrities, they are often well known, rich and powerful.
