Projects are guides or instructions that detail the steps to follow to achieve a certain goal. A project, in this way, collects ideas and actions that are interrelated with a purpose. Architectural, for its part, refers to what is linked to architecture (the science dedicated to the design and construction of buildings).
An architectural project, therefore, is a set of information and diagrams that allow to detail, in some type of support, what a work that plans to carry out will be like. These projects include graphics, diagrams, plans and information that are presented in printed and / or digital format. They can also include mockups and other kinds of renderings.
When undertaking an architectural project, it must be borne in mind that a series of steps must be followed so that it is the result of serious, professional and competent work:
-The first thing is to establish the contextual framework in which it will be developed. That means recording the conditions in which it occurs both economically and politically, among others. In this same field, reference should be made to the conclusions of the design, the definition of its users or the problem to be solved.
-Secondly, there is what is called the historical framework. Under that denomination are included issues such as contributions and innovations, the evolution of the building to be designed, the conclusions regarding sustainability, design or typology ...
-Thirdly, there is the theoretical-conceptual framework. This comes to define from the conceptualization of the building to be built (when, how much it costs, why, how, with what ...) to the theoretical foundation through the architectural influences it has or the conclusions of the design.
-The next step is to determine the so-called methodological framework. This comes to make clear the steps that will be taken, the techniques and procedures that will be used and even what are the necessary recommendations in this regard.
-The operational framework is also basic, it is the one that establishes the beginning of the work.
Broadly speaking, these we can say that they are the main props that an architectural project has, so that it is adequate, optimal, advantageous and according to the needs that are possessed in a building.
The architect who develops the project begins by conducting research on the viability of his idea. The usual thing is that a person goes to the architect with a specific request and that the architect analyzes how a construction could satisfy the needs raised by his client.
According to the available land, the budget, the deadlines and other variables that the architect must find out, the development of the architectural project will begin. The architect will specify which spaces he plans to build (for example, bedrooms, dining room, bathroom, kitchen, and patio) and graph the layout.
Representations through models or computer programs will then be added to the plans, which allow the client to “see” what the building that the architect intends to develop is like.
Finally, the architect will advance with the construction plans and with various reports aimed at contractors and builders so that the work can materialize.
