Architecture and the Profession

Alexander Rappaport

Abstract


The author questions the generally accepted definition of architecture as a profession, because the genuine subject of architecture has not been defined yet. The article underlines the systemless selection of subjects studied at architectural schools and an indefinite status of the architect in the democratic society. Either the crisis faced by architecture in the third millennium can finish the transformation of architecture into building design or architecture will acquire a professional status.

Keywords


architecture; architectural profession; craft nature of architecture; absence of the subject of architecture; architecture in the third millennium; building design; possibility to acquire a professional status
