The PhD project is a qualitative study of contemporary Norwegian architecture education. An important question is what kind of professional identities, methods and concepts of quality the students of architecture are developing during their education. This is seen from a communication perspective.
The research project puts the architect profession in a wide democratic context, where issues related to power and professional ethics are discussed.
The project is multidisciplinary in character and crosses the disciplines of sociology of architect, theory of professions and educational theories of learning.
