(4) contexts

Architectural research takes place in a broad societal and cultural context, connecting academy, practice, and (continuing) education. A clarification of this position is necessary, stimulating stronger links between theoretical and practice-based research and between academic and professional arenas.

By its nature, architecture also connects to a variety of industries, including the cultural sector, the construction sector, the environmental sector, the public, private and social sectors. Moreover, architecture has its own industry which is professional practice. Much of the most innovative and relevant architectural research inevitably emerge from and contributes to this industry of professional practice.
