The Master Builder
Architekton is the Greek word for Master Builder.
The ancient Master Builder was an expert in all phases of design and construction. His responsibility extended well beyond the architectural design. He was the overseer of the entire project, from concept, to design, and through every detail of construction; the Master Builder.
The Architekton and the owner worked together; there was no general contractor between them; no misunderstood interpretation of the original architectural design. There are few modern day Master Builders. The high standards and responsibilities of the Master Builder are unique; extreme passion and dedication. A Master Builder cannot separate his design from the construction. It is this driving passion and attention to details, in all phases of the project, that leads the Master Builder to excellence and the project to success.
