    Bottom line - the client decides.

    Architects will decide based on clients wishes and specifications, and in many cases is limited by government standards.
    (for example the heights of his guard rails are governed by standards)
    Or the maximum height of his building will be limited by state laws.

    If they have free reign on certain elements, then they do the design and pass it on to the client who then approves (or not) and once that process is done, passes it to the engineer who TRIES to make it work, but if the design is flawed or requires additional elements, or is overdesigned, the engineer will often rationalise the design depending on the skill and knowledge of the architect, and also the requirements in the contract.
