Jeremy’s Answer

Architects design the building, interior architecture and coordinate with other trades. They can do the shell building, interior layouts and sometimes select finishes. Interior designers stick with interior design including the space plans, finishes, sometimes wayfinding, branding, furniture fit and finish. As an architect, you need to be an expert on building codes, know your zoning regulations and how to manage a team of consultants (engineers and interior designers).

Betsy’s Answer

architects design the building itself, they follow the local building codes and zoning laws to craft the building to the owners specifications. They can be creative as to what the outside of the building looks like or possibly the shape and design of the rooms but they do not put the finishing decorative touches, that's what an interior designer does.

ALEXANDER’s Answer

There are many types of paths within the profession of architecture which makes is super exciting. There is much overlap with all the other related professions from interior designers to landscape architects to structural engineers. Also, one can focus more on the business/money aspect of the profession to the more design focused side to the entitlement and code focus. Or all of that!
