The Slovak Chamber of Architects and its relation to pedagogues and undergraduates of schools of architecture

Peter Pásztor

SUMMARY

The task of the Chamber of Architects is to take care of the status of architects and architecture. The undergraduates at the Faculty of Architecture are its future members and therefore the chamber should take care of them too. On the other hand, the chamber expects highly professional education at the FA STU in accordance with the European standard. The impulse to make the cooperation between the chamber and the schools of architecture will be the bilateral contracts on cooperation, the first one has been signed with the FA STU. The chamber does not want to interfere in the way of education but it cannot be indiferrent to the professional skill of the graduates. One of the problems is the design of the architectural building by civil engineers.
