            Progressive Studio Pedagogy provides guidance to educators in all design fields by questioning processes and assumptions about teaching and learning, utilising examples from architecture, landscape architecture, and interior design. Through a series of case studies, this book pre...sents innovative approaches to learning and teaching in design studio. Traditionally, design education is perceived to be a process for acquiring skills and a site for developing creative potential. However, contemporary higher education is embracing issues that include widening participation, managing transition, fostering independent learning and graduate employability. This book situates design learning within this varied context, and offers insights into how to confront the challenge of facilitating learning through divergent contexts by presenting projects and courses that use a range of approaches that require students to think and act critically and evaluatively. Progressive Studio Pedagogy presents new practices that readers can adapt into their own creative education, making it an ideal read for those interested in teaching design.

            Research Methods for the Architectural Profession

            Research Methods for the Architectural Profession introduces research as a systematic process, describes how to formulate research questions, provides an in-depth explanation of different research methods (qualitative, quantitative, and experimental), explains how to select appro...priate research methods, and execute research studies. It describes the process of documentation, knowledge dissemination, and application of research results in architectural design and practice. Most importantly, it provides guidelines for integrating research into profession, and uses extensive case-studies and practice-relevant examples to illustrate main concepts, procedures, and applications. Integrating research into practice is essential for developing new knowledge, solving design and technical problems, overcoming different types of challenges present in contemporary profession, and improving the design outcomes. Innovation requires a much stronger correlation between research and design, and it is pertinent for the future of architectural practice that research becomes an integral part of architectural profession. This book provides a roadmap for successfully integrating research into architectural design and for establishing innovative practices, regardless of a firm's size. Written by an architecture professor with extensive research and professional background-specifically focusing on integrating research into practice-and richly illustrated with over 150 color images, this reference will be useful for both students and practitioners.

            Architect's Legal Handbook is the most widely used reference on the law for practicing architects and the established textbook on law for architectural students. Since the last edition of this book in 2010 the legal landscape in which architecture is practised has changed signifi...cantly: the long-standing procurement model with an architect as contract administrator has been challenged by the growing popularity of design and build contracts, contract notices in place of certificates, and novation of architect's duties. The tenth edition features all the latest developments in the law which affect an architect's work, as well as providing comprehensive coverage of relevant UK law topics. Key highlights of this edition include: an overview of the legal environment, including contract, tort and land law. analysis of the statutory framework, including planning law, health and safety, construction legislation and building regulations in the post-Grenfell legal landscape. procurement, and the major industry construction contract forms. building dispute resolution, including litigation, arbitration, adjudication and mediation. key fields for the architect in practice, including architects' registration and professional conduct, contracts with clients and collateral warranties, liability in negligence and insurance. entirely new chapters on various standard form contracts, architects' responsibility for the work of others, disciplinary proceedings, and data protection. tables of cases, legislation, statutes and statutory instruments give a full overview of references cited in the text. The Architect's Legal Handbook is the essential legal reference work for all architects and students of architecture.

            What can you do with a degree in architecture? Where might it take you? What kind of challenges could you address?
