This paper focuses on the common difficulties in architectural education - its role, and its motives. The construction industry has consistently needed more qualified project managers, more technicians, and better business practices. Yet, a primary tenet of architectural education is that the industry is more qualified to train the student in the intricacies of practice. The education about practice is limited primarily due to the emphasis on design education. What is it that we, as educators, teach in design education?
