AbstractAfter discussing pubic perceptions about architects and some criticisms that members of the public and professors of architecture have voiced, the author looks at how architecture is fundamentally a service profession, where the architect offers his engineering and visual training in the service of the buyer. The author then looks at how commitment to the service model would require curricular changes in architecture schools, as well as improving the public's perception of architecture as a professional field.
