ARCH 4701 Professional Practice I is designed to introduce undergraduate architecture majors to important issues in professional practice, with an emphasis on leadership and collaboration. Current architecture practice requires a collaborative approach to leadership both within the architecture firm and beyond, as when working with client groups, community and governmental organizations, contractors and subcontractors, and material fabricators. Architects also must understand their responsibility as global citizens and as stewards of the built and natural environments and must work to ensure that the interests of all groups are embraced in the design process, including those who typically are “invisible” to the profession. ARCH 4701 prepares students to understand the challenges facing contemporary architecture practice and to employ collaborative skills within professional and academic situations.
