ARCH 645: Architectural Practice in Canada Report a Broken Link

Architecture 645 explores the theoretical and practical aspects of Canadian architectural practice. Architecture is never created in isolation; therefore the various stakeholders involved in the design and construction of buildings (such as builders, Authorities Having Jurisdiction, consultants, owners, and clients) and their relationship to the architect is explored. The course not only includes the current context in which architects practice and the laws and regulations that govern their practice in Canada, but also looks to the future and the position of the architect in society and around the globe.
