Abstract

The current model of architectural education has its roots in the protectionist professional norms of the 1960s. Using the sociological perspectives of Larson’s ‘Professional Power’ model and the traits of professions this paper considers the reasons why professional education is not meeting the current requirements of global practice. It then considers the effects of globalisation and questions the relevance of national restrictive practices in a global marketplace for both procurement and design professionals and proposes research into the context of global practice using Garrett’s perspectives of Globalisation to determine new models of professional education.
