      • Professional Practice Courses introduce architectural students to the world of professional practice.
      • The profession as we know it today was formalized in the nineteenth century.
      • The twentieth century, and especially the last three decades, has been a time of explosive growth and change for the profession.
      • Architects are part of a larger planning, design, and construction enterprise that works to meet our needs for shelter and habitat.
        • Introduction
    • International The Union of International Architects (UIA) The UIA is an international non governmental organization founded in Lausanne in 1948 to unite architects from all nations throughout the world, regardless of nationality, race, religion or architectural school of thought, within the federations of their national associations. The UIA represents over a million architects throughout the world through national architectural associations that form the 92 UIA Member Sections. A democratically structured body, the UIA is a unique world network uniting all architects. http://www.uia-architectes.org/
        • The Professional Bodies Around the World
    • USA The American Institute of Architects (AIA) http://www.aia.org UK The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) was established to define and uphold this professional standard, and since 1931, and the Architects (Registration) Acts, UK law requires that any person who calls themselves an architect or wishes to practice as such and carries on a business with that title must appear on a government register. Presently this register, and the rules governing qualification, conduct and disciplinary actions for architects are maintained by the Architects Registration Board (ARB). The RIBA and the ARB jointly validate the courses that lead to qualification. http:// www. architecture.com
