This course will examine the professional environment in which the architect works as well as the knowledge base related to the organization and conduct of a design practice. After investigating the nature of Professions and a short history of the architectural profession, we will look at the building process and the architect's role in the design and construction phases, architect/client dynamics, the interrelationships between practice, information, and project management, and the ethical and legal guidelines for the profession. Issues related to practice will be explored, such as local and world economic conditions, getting started, competitions, getting published, and social responsibility. The goal of the seminar is to broaden and deepen the student's understanding of the profession, its role in society, and his or her place in it.
