Abstract

Many people view the architectural profession as biased towards artistic and intuitive solutions, but lacking in terms of evidence based research and rigorous scientific inquiry. Such perception is understandable in view of the fact that architecture schools generally attract fewer research grants than other scientific and technologically-driven centres or education and is often rated lowly when compared to other faculties with respect to research activities and output. In most cases, design is arguably considered and promoted by architectural fraternity as a kind of research activity. Unfortunately, many non-architectural researchers tend to be skeptical on the link between design and research activities. Nevertheless, architectural research has increasingly become an important area of inquiry due to many factors such as the rapid advance in technology and construction methods, speed of service delivery, changing public perception on the profession, emerging issues in education and quite significantly, an ever increasing concern on the effects of physical development on man’s future well being and the sustainability of the environment.
