- Have you ever wondered what an architect does? Or considered becoming an architect? Or perhaps you're working with or plan to work with an architect in the future. I'm Branka Knezevic, founder and principal architect at Plana, a boutique architecture studio based in Los Angeles. My career spans 15 years. I've had the opportunity to work on a wide range of project types. Education, retail, commercial office buildings, office interiors, historical buildings, and residential. Here I'll break down the process architects follow to bring our vision to reality using real-life examples from my practice. I'll explain the language architects use and I'll discuss framework behind architecture such as regulation and contracts. I look forward to sharing my knowledge and experiences with you so join me on Architectural Design Process Foundations.
