a person who works in the design field whose job is seriously underrated and under appreciated. Though they go through more schooling then most people, they earn a fraction of the pay and usually die in debt. However, the sheer joy of knowing they made a difference in the world is enough to sustain them and make every CEO, Lawyer and Stockbroker wish they had done something better with their lives.
Mies Van Der Rohe was a famous architect, who died in a Penn Station bathroom and wasn't identified for three days. However, in his short life, he managed to acomplish more then any lawyer ever could.

One who assesses situation and defines goals for analysis and resolution in fresh form then provides the guidance for its implementation.

In this, the architect combines survey and interpretation, art and science, documentation and management, planning and development.

An architect may work with buildings or anything else. Their work is usually conceived as a project and their involvement spans the breadth of that project extending beyond it to its multitude of connections. The title when used alone refers to those trained and registered to deal with the built environment. That title may be linked to any other field of endeavour to describe by association with the nature of the architectural profession, the capability of developing a similar process.
