Roles, skills, engagement and problem-issues

About the Book

  • Practice: Roles and Skills - assesses the various types and needs for skills in architecture practice and more.
  • Practice: Engagement - summarises the challenges of engaging stakeholders and others in the processes of change, and practical tools and tactics to help that happen.
  • Practice: Influences - suggests examples of elements and concerns that can influence architecture practice in various ways.
  • Practice: Mispractice - describes examples of flawed discipline and poor practice that can or do cause damage to change-projects and to architecture itself.
