Architect, Designer, Build or Assemble.

Posted at — Jan 31, 2015

I’m not an official Webster’s representative but experience tells me:

The difference between assemble and build is the amount and level of detail instruction.

The difference between architect and designer is the principle priorities. The architect is primarily interested in scale and function where the designer is primarily interested in aesthetic and function.

And where architects are further defined by scope which blur (application, system, enterprise); designers try to focus with distinct, sharp, boundaries.
