Abstract

Over the past century, an architect has tended to be regarded as a “master builder”. They are ascribed the combined characteristics of a designer, engineer, sociologist and scientist in their creative faculty for the present modern age. Despite the bequest of the technological era, building processes continue to fragment and the leadership role of the “master builder” is uncertain. Nevertheless, studies have revealed that unusual forces have emerged to change the leadership role architect’s play in the built environment. Therefore, the article explores the multidisciplinary nature of architecture and postulated diversity of content in the architecture profession as an entrepreneurial opportunity for professional sustainability. This conceptual paper recommends innovations in the architectural education system and diversification of the professional practice.
