Abstract

As the pace of development of design and construction processes within the building industry gathers further momentum into the 21st century, it is an imperative for the design profession to keep track of such developments in order to stay relevant to the nation’s physical development. The structural reform the profession is seen as necessary and inevitable. But more importantly, a thoroughly rehabilitated minds-set must be in place within the profession before any progress can be achieved at the strategic level. This paper seeks to outline and elucidate the various external developments that had thus far been instrumental in facilitating extensive changes within the overall set up of the building industry but have yet to affect the core of the traditional architect’s practice.
