    No. Architects design all sorts of structures, both public and private. Some examples include bridges, parks, stadiums, hospitals, schools and office buildings.

    Architects are also responsible for the overall design of a building or project, including its aesthetics, functionality and safety. They work with clients to understand their needs and create drawings and models that reflect those needs. Then they work with builders to see the project through to completion.

    There are many types of architects. Some only design buildings, others design bridges, tunnels, stadiums, and other large structures. There are also landscape architects who design outdoor spaces and city planners who design entire cities. Architects can also specialize in environmental design or green architecture which incorporates sustainable features into the designs of buildings and other structures.

    No, architects also design furniture and other objects. Furniture design is a speciality within architecture that requires a separate qualification. Furniture designers often have different skills to architects in terms of understanding construction, manufacturing and materials. However, the two disciplines are becoming more blurred as furniture becomes more complex and architecturally inspired.

    No. Architects are also responsible for city planning, which includes the design of streets, parks, and other public spaces. They may also work on historic preservation projects or provide consulting services to other professionals involved in the design of buildings and landscapes.

    No, architects design anything that falls within the field of architecture which includes, but is not limited to, buildings.

    Some other examples of things architects might design are parks, playgrounds, sports stadiums, airports, train stations, bus terminals, hospitals, schools, universities, prisons, and jails. Basically, any type of structure or public space would be something an architect might be involved in designing.
