APPENDIX IV

ARCHITECTURAL-PRACTICE
ORGANIZATION, SERVICES DELIVERY,
AND ETHICAL CONSIDERATIONS

The California Board of Architectural Examiners (CBAE) developed a job analysis for architectural practice as part of its test-plan development for the California Supplemental Exam, a part of the state's licensure procedure. Part of this job-analysis process included a description of architectural practice in terms of the tasks and knowledge necessary for architectural practice in California.

These tasks and knowledge were presented with two frames: the Organization of Architectural Practice, which covers professional services, and the Delivery of Architectural Services, which covers research, design analysis and programming, and design implementation.

This practice description is presented in summary form, along with significant questions for ethical consideration of the identified practice tasks. It is another instrument for you to use in developing your understanding of the nexus of ethics and the practice of architecture. The summary is based on material in The Practice of Architecture in California: A report on the 1998 analysis of architectural practice in California, published by the California Board of Architectural Examiners (CBAE).
