WASHINGTON, DC – 15 Mar, 2017 – Gensler, the world’s largest architecture and design firm, recently released Volume 2 of its Professional Practice Case Study Series, an educational resource that teaches users how to handle the logistical and business challenges inherent in real-world architecture, engineering, and construction projects. This suite of case studies, developed and written by Gensler design and delivery experts, supplements the curricula used at accredited architecture and design schools by exposing readers to authentic project scenarios and teaching them how to apply principles learned in the classroom to actual project work. Already in use at several top design schools, the series has elicited positive responses from students and professors alike.
“The Gensler Case Study series provides real-world professional scenarios for group and individual discussion,” says Jennifer Chandela, professor of Professional Practice at Tulane School of Architecture. “In my Professional Practice course it infuses the lecture class format with opportunities for seminar-style discussion.”
The Professional Practice Case Study Series features topics covered in the American Institute of Architect’s Handbook of Professional Practice. Volume 2 examines multipurpose base building and corporate interiors projects. Each entry in the series provides background information on budgets, funding, and contractual agreements in order to convey a broad understanding of the overall project. Users are then guided through 10 different scenarios, each covering a different challenge, opportunity, or project specific function. Video interviews with Gensler practitioners supplement the written material and provide personal insights into the design process.
