This teaching unit is designed to expose student architects to their commitments and responsibilities, from the perspective of participating in a design team/specific realisation in the construction sector.
In this unit, students will become familiar with and understand the issues relating to the legal status of architect. The unit will clarify the different levels of responsibility and will provide a practical explanation of the different tools to manage a project and a construction site.
The teaching unit is made up of two parts:

  • Objectives, challenges, impacts and responsibilities of an architecture assignment
  • Breaking down of the different steps and stages of a complete architectural project (implementation) & drawing up of the relevant contractual documents
