An architect as a professional in today's day and age represents someone involved in the construction industry tasked with a responsibility for conceptualizing physical spaces and bringing them into reality. Etymologically the word finds its origins in ancient Greek with the word being comprised of 'arkhi' and 'tekton' which loosely translate to 'master' and 'builder' correspondingly.
Historically architectural design and construction was carried out by artisans such as stone masons and carpenters, who were coordinated by a "master builder". There was no clear distinction between architect and engineer. This has created a body of theoretical knowledge which spans across different industry.
This created a field of study spanning the spectrum of creative thinking and logical thinking. The talk sheds light on some interesting examples of how 'architects' have dealt with problems in such a space.
