An architectural designer is a person that is involved in the design of buildings or urban landscapes.[1]


Architectural designers have skills similar to those of architects.[2] However, they may not hold the same degree qualification and are generally not recognised by a statutory body.[citation needed] Depending on the jurisdiction, limitations may exist in projects in the work that an architectural designer is permitted to perform without direct supervision from a registered architect.

Often, architectural designers who have not registered as architects are referred to as architectural draftspersons or designers as this term is not protected by statute in most countries.[citation needed] However, in many countries around the world, the term architectural designer and the derivatives of architecture are legally reserved for registered architects.[citation needed]
