Abstract [en]

The crisis of the architectural profession during the 1970s fostered an interest in the professional relationship between practice and education. Following its publication in 1991, Dana Cuff's book, Architecture: The Story of Practice, soon became a standard reference in this field, insisting that education should be counted as a part of practice. This historiographical essay concentrates on the background of Cuff's work and her analysis of the early training of an architect, stressing contributions by contemporary scholars like Donald Schon. Through a critical examination of the design-studio dominance in architectural education, it also reconsiders the relevance of Cuff's work today.
