Education and Practice: The Critical Interface [Conference Proceedings]

For many years architects and educators have debated questions about appropriate approaches to architectural education: HOW should education serve the profession? What should be our educational objectives? What level of computer expertise and potential should society expect of our graduates? At times the pragmatic concerns of practitioners have clashed with the theoretical concerns of educators. Most would agree that both points of view have merit; it is in establishing an appropriate balance that we most disagree. Now, the discussions have expanded to include issues of computer-aided design. Software and hardware vendors find themselves in the middle of a difficult but interesting dilemma. While supporting systems optimized for professional practice they are asked to supply radically different systems for educational use.
