Practical, technical, and academic requirements for becoming an architect vary by jurisdiction. The terms architect and architecture are also used in the disciplines of landscape architecture, naval architecture and often information technology. In most jurisdictions, the professional and commercial uses of the terms "architect" and "landscape architect" are legally protected.

I'm going to have to go with math. Even though that's one of my harder subjects, but it's one of the funnest. Because I also want to be an architect when I grow up, if I can, and I know that being an architect takes a lot of math in it.

Obama is not the man at the wheel desperately trying to conserve American power, influence and wealth. For ideological reasons, he wants the slipping to continue. He's actually the architect of it.
7
Riteish Deshmukh
The first time I had sushi, I hated it. And the second time was no different, and then, I just started loving it. I actually crave for sushi. It's one of the healthiest meals. My experiments with food began when I was working in New York as an architect, be it Korean or Ethiopian food or fusion food.
