DEFINING THE PRACTICE OF ARCHITECTURE FOR STUDENTS
The Architect's Handbook of Professional Practice has been a definitive guide to architectural practice for almost a century. Now this student edition, which has been carefully adapted from the Thirteenth Edition of the Handbook, gives students vital access to the cutting edge of the profession-with essential information on how architects are managing the change from product-based practices to those that are knowledge-based and service-oriented.
Reviewed by a group of leading architectural educators, this edition distills material from the professional edition to provide a compact and convenient reference for students. In addition, it contains an overview of the architectural profession and the NCARB Intern Development Program guidelines.
Addressing the growing importance of the client as a key participant in the practice equation, this student edition features a new section devoted to clients and client-architect relationships. Subsequent sections on business, delivery, and services offer a wealth of crucial "redefinition" knowledge and tools used to design, build, and maintain a successful practice -from business planning and project management to the development of expanded, added-value services. Also included are electronic samples of the AIA contract documents (more than 75 in all) on a companion CD-ROM.
Bringing together the experience of experts from architecture as well as law, business, and other professions, the student edition of The Architect's Handbook of Professional Practice is an important resource to help prepare students for high-quality professional practice. In a convenient book/CD-ROM format, it offers tomorrow's architects the information they will need to meet the changing demands of the marketplace with insight and confidence.
