Systems and the Changing Architectural Practice.
Heimsath, Clovis B.
The architecture profession needs to employ systems building design in order to raise the rate of productivity and performance in construction. Changes have been made in architecture educational programs that recognize the shift in the role of the architect from design genius to building production manager. Systems design has led to changes within the architectural organization, including a more highly structured organization composed of a team capable of management decisions and an organization capable of offering a complete package of services to the client. Also presented are data indicating that the U.S. Government has made a major shift toward systems building and that other big builders are following suit. (Author/DN)
