Anyone who has endeavored to remodel or build a home from the ground up knows that the process can be trying at best, infuriating at worst. That process can be made infinitely more enjoyable when you have the benefit of a professional architect's expertise at the ready. In How to Work with an Architect, noted architect and Taliesin Fellow Gerald Lee Morosco, AIA, reveals the essential criteria for a successful architect/client relationship, explaining not only what the benefits of working with an architect are, but also showing how an architect adds immeasurable value to a project.
Focusing mainly on single-family residential design, Morosco presents a thorough discussion of the collaboration process, beginning with what an architect is and how an architect can help you. How to Work with an Architect helps you answer important questions before you hire an architect or start a project, including:
What is an Architect?
Do I Really Need an Architect?
How Do I Find an Architect?
How Do I Negotiate a Contract?
Where do I Build or Buy?
What Zoning and Building Codes Do I Need to Be Aware of?
How Do I Find a Builder?
How to Work with an Architect also offers a brief history of the profession, with features on prominent architects and their philosophies. In addition, there are sidebars featuring the American Institute of Architects, NCARB, state licensing boards, a directory of Taliesin fellows, a step-by-step planning checklist, and much more. With color photos and plan drawings, this book is an invaluable resource for anyone embarking on the process of building a new home.
