Defining The Practice Of Architecture For Students Not simply an abridged or adapted student edition of The Architect's Handbook of Professional Practice, Fourteenth Edition, this book has been specifically developed for today's architecture students. Recognizing its use as required reading in professional practice courses, this book contains knowledge specific to the needs of students and emerging professionals. In a noted departure, the publisher John Wiley & Sons and the American Institute of Architects (AIA), as author, have named this book The Architecture Student's Handbook of Professional Practice. Suitable for use as a professional practice course outline, content is organizedin four parts: The Profession: the concepts of professionalism and professional development Practice: developing and operating a practice as well as client relations The Project: the construction, management, and closeout of projects Contracts and Agreements: AIA Contract Documents In developing The Architecture Student's Handbook, an advisory group of notedprofessional practice educators and practitioners reviewed the content of TheArchitect's Handbook to distill the content for students. Some content is taken directly from The Architect's Handbook, some is edited or condensed, and, significantly, unique content has been developed only for students. The Architecture Student's Handbook has a particular emphasis on integrated practice and integrated project delivery, with new content on research and evidence-based design that does not appear in The Architect's Handbook. At least a quarter of The Architecture Student's Handbook content is unique or significantly edited from the professional book. With a CD-ROM that contains samples of AIA Contract Documents (more than 75 in all, in PDF format for Mac and PC computers) including those that released in 2007, The Architecture Student's Handbook of Professional Practice introduces a framework for students to understand all aspects of architectural practice.American Institute of Architects is the author of 'The Architecture Student's Handbook of Professional Practice', published 2008 under ISBN 9780470088692 and ISBN 0470088699.
