Abstract

. The argument in this paper centres on architectural education, research, and theory. Architectural studies draw on a variety of disciplines. This, conventionally, is a justification for locating schools of architecture in universities. However, without a scholarly base of theory and research in the discipline, this rationale remains questionable. The changing socioeconomic and political conditions in South Africa highlight this dilemma.
