Hi, I'm searching for an Architect to answer a few questions in order for me to complete an assignment, and gain a greater understanding of the profession and those who work in it! Any and all answers are appreciated ASAP. A name and business name are also appreciated for referencing purposes. 

Thanks in advance.

b) Your role in general and how it relates to designing a building.
c) Your opinions of the roles of other professions on the building site (designer, builder, decorator).
