Architects obviously do architecture work, while technical consultants and engineers handle the detailed design required to accomplish project goals. This seems a reasonably simple definition, but the devil lies in the details - especially in smaller institutions where people might perform a mixture of architecture and design work. This debate occurs frequently within the architecture profession. The difference between architecture and design work is also an important topic in the professional development of HP Services employees, because the training and certification that individuals will take to work as an architect differs from what they'd take to work as a technical consultant or engineer.
