Hi Paclanders,

I just want to share my knowledge about Architecture. I am a registered architect in the Philippines and practicing architecture for almost 5 years. I graduated from my Mapua Institute of Technology and now working here in Singapore.

If you have any questions and queries relating Architecture and my work, I will try to answer the best that I can. If you are studying architecture or any related topics or planning to take up this course, I’m willing to help you with my full knowledge and information.

Here are the lists/topics we can discuss:
Basic Architecture
Designing (residentials, recreationals, Hotel and resorts, High-rise buildings, hospitals, airports and terminals etc.)
Urban Planning (subdivisions and large-scale projects)
Interior Design
Landscaping
Project Management
Site/Construction Inspection
Basic Drafting
AutoCad Drafting (w/ 3D)
Microstation Drafting
Renderings (water color, poster color, markers, colored pencil etc.)


P.S.
Mods please be very strict for unrelated and idiotic posts. Thanks

Which one is better for architecture tools, Staedtler or Rotring??


I never used Rotring except for my triangles. All of my tech pens are Staedtler :D

Would you recommend exposed piping for the waterline for easy maintenance?
Would you recommend a column-less single story building to save on materials?
Is it possible to design and build a building without an architect? Would you recommend it?
What is the reasonable rate to charge prospective clients? Isn't 7 to 10% to much? Is an architect better than a civil engineer?

Staedtler is better than Rotring
But Rotring is cheaper.
For Tech Pens, I used also Staedtler but for other tools
I used other cheaper brands

getting struck by lightning?

thanks for your advice...

1. Actually, all waterlines are designed to be exposed. It was hidden in a shafts(small rooms) for easy maintenance. Sometimes, residentials in RP are not using this instead of roughing in pipes to save space.
2. Architect are meant to be the chief designer of any building. It's not possible to build without an architect. Also, architects sign plans for application of building permit. How can you get a permit without an architect signing in.
3. For residentials, the rule of thumb is 10% of project cost. Sometimes some well known architects like Locsin, Manosa, Palafox etc. can charge up to 20% to 30%. And there's a different computations for bigger projects
4. Architect is very different from Civil Engineer. We cannot compare who's better. The role of the Architect is the superior designer or chief consultant of any project. Civil Engineers are consultants concentrating on STRUCTURAL side only. Also, there are lot of different Engineering specialty like Mechanical, Electrical, Computers etc.

BTW, I missed to answer the column-less question.
There’s no such thing as a column-less structure, maybe you’re referring to using of Load-Bearing Walls instead of columns. Every Structural elements are complicated, computed and calculated accurately by Civil Engineers. There’s no way you can save through structural materials because it’s a MUST. Every grade and class of cement are calculated, every rebars(steels) sizes and quantity are computed. Hope that clarifies
