Architect: An overworked and underpaid employee – of a pretentious registered practitioner of the arts (a prat). Many years in tertiary education have left the ‘architect’ bitter and in debt – and unable to relate to the remainder of society.
I am an ‘architect’ – the rest of you are unimaginative scum.
…not to be confused with…
Architard: A person who believes they are highly skilled in residential or commercial design, when more likely, they one I.Q. point away from selling paint at Home Depot.
When you see a house or building that is ugly beyond comprehension, you might say “Uck! Who was the architard on that one, Frank Lloyd Wrong?!”
Architectoid: An Architectoid refers to those studying atchitecture, before completely qualified.
After qualifying fully, an Architectoid becomes an Architect.
And the activities of an architect are defined accordingly:
Architected: Adj. An object or building with interesting or clear design aspects. Something that it looks like someone went to great pains to design, with great results.
Man that pencil holder is architected. That podium sure was architected!
And of course, the most elusive of definitions:
Architecture: A course where students slave over countless hours of work to hopefully receive a C. It is also expected that most of the students will switch into a more fulfilling major that is easier.
“My architecture class is great this week. I’ve gotten two hours of sleep and I almost have a C in the class”.
1. The overall appearance a woman’s body.
2. A woman with an exellent body (ie well-built)
Homegirl’s working with some serious architecture. I’m sitting at the beach, admiring all the architecture.
Neither of these last definitions, I suspect, really adequately sums what we here at the Architecture Centre are about…
