“Architect” didn’t used to be a verb, and I doubt if many, (and maybe not any) building architects use it as such yet, but it has been used as a verb for quite a while now in the IT industry. I don’t know that many actual software architects use it as a verb, either, but people in IT management commonly do. At one time “engineer” and “doctor” were not used as verbs, either, but both are standard usage now. “To architect” is still at a stage where it sounds like jargon to most people, including me.

But language does drift, so maybe it will catch on, and maybe it won’t. I wouldn’t want to bet that “to architect” won’t eventually become common usage. Popular usage is unpredictable. As Calvin said, verbing weirds language, and that can be both fun and useful. Of course, as an English major, I will go on using designed, and keep architect as a noun. If, fifty years hence, my traditional usage sounds stodgy and old fashioned, well, I doubt anything I’ve written will survive that long, and even if it does, something will have deaded me by then, so I won’t be around to care.

Here’s a photo as church. I can’t quite make out the date stamp, but could be 1998:

Still listed as the Jerome Theater in the 1960 yellow pages. Phone number was CYpress 9-1150.

Located just a few blocks south of the Loews Burnside and perhaps a half a mile east of the Park Plaza both of which showed films that were first run for the Bronx (except for Loews Paradise), the Jerome was a second run house.
