This is not a question I get asked often, but it is a question that most non-architects should ask.
There is a process to an architectural project. I am making a series of videos that explain the process. This is the first video which outlines the process. I also describe how the process is not strictly linear, but how it is more like a corkscrew.
I hope that the video is useful and informative. This just starts to describe what an architect does.
