Survey on National Standard of Competency for Architects
The SAHANZ Committee strongly encourages members to participate in the Architects Accreditation Council of Australia (AACA) survey that is currently open, and to voice support for the role of architectural history and heritage as critical aspects of architectural education and professional competency in Australia. The national competency standards (NSCA) could, for instance, recognise the importance of skills in the study of precedents as part of the foundation of design conception. They could also be more explicit in recognising the significance of an understanding of heritage in thinking about design and sustainability.
The survey closes on 27 February 2020. Take the survey now.
