This book is a practical guide for students or those already running or thinking of running a small practice on how to set up and run a small architectural practice and how to run multiple small projects efficiently. It is split into three distinct sections: Part 1 begins with the practicalities of setting up a small architectural business; Part 2 goes into detail on how to run your small practice, including valuable advice on business planning and cash flow; and Part 3 follows with guidance on running multiple small projects. Structured around the RIBA Plan of Work, this section has plenty of examples of the kinds of projects - both domestic and non-domestic - that the small practice might take on, and finishing with 10 illustrated case studies of domestic and commercial projects from 50,000-750,000.

This is your essential one stop shop for information on starting and running a practice. Case studies and advice from practitioners, big and small, run alongside outlines of all the key topics, to give you an insight into the problems and challenges others have faced when setting up a design business. Accessible and informative, this handbook is the ideal first point of reference when starting a practice. Architects have many different reasons for setting up in practice; equally, there are many ways of running your own business. This handbook helps you consider whether or not you should set up on your own, examining issues such as financing, office space, recruitment, IT and workingo ut a business plan. Some architects want to stay small, while others have ambitions to grow into large businesses. Some grow big accidentally. And then there are those who pick and choose their work carefully, and even turn down undesirable contracts, while others will grab at everything possible. This book woudl explore these different models and illustrate how different kinds of practice develop into successful businesses. Importantly, the book will stress that these issues are crucial - you may be the best designer in the world, but unless your business is well managed you will fail. On the other hand, some successful architects spend a lot of time looking for new work and attending to management issues, rarely finding the time for design work. This book would illustrate how architects have struck a balance between these two extremes.

Wie sieht es eigentlich bei denen aus, die täglich über gutes Bauen nachdenken? Wo entstehen die Ideen und Entwürfe für zeitgenössische Architektur? 76 Architekturbüros aus dem deutschsprachigen und internationalen Raum gewähren Einblicke in ihre Räumlichkeiten. Jedes Architekturbüro ist mit einer Aussenansicht, einem Innenraumfoto und einer Grundrisszeichnung dargestellt, in der zudem die Arbeitsplätze der Inhaber markiert sind. So werden nicht nur Gemeinsamkeiten und Unterschiede zwischen den Architekten anschaulich, sondern auch die interne Organisation der Büros und die Haltung, die das jeweilige Gebäude ausdrückt. Die Räume, in denen Architekten heute arbeiten und Besuch empfangen, erzählen von einem Berufstand, der sich polyglott, bodenständig, provisorisch, ehrlich, ironisch, seriös oder verspielt gibt. Gearbeitet wird in Wolkenkratzern und Scheunen, in Stadt- und in Lagerhäusern, am Wasser und im Wald. Die exemplarischen Einblicke in 76 Architekturbüros werden von einer grundlegenden Betrachtung über Kontinuitäten und Brüche des Typus „Atelier/Studio“ begleitet.

Das Bauen mit Glas eröffnet den Planern faszinierende gestalterische Möglichkeiten. Schon lange dient es als lichtdurchlässiger Raumabschluss, kann aber deutlich mehr: Glas sichert gegen Absturz, schützt vor Explosionen, wehrt bewaffnete Angriffe ab, bildet begehbare Flächen in Dächern, Treppen und Emporen und übernimmt sogar Systemlasten innerhalb eines Tragwerks. In Kombination mit zahlreichen Veredelungsmethoden sowie verschiedenen Materialien und Beschichtungen erfüllt Glas auch hohe bauphysikalische Anforderungen. Dieser Band liefert kompakt, übersichtlich und anschaulich einen über die Grundlagen hinausreichenden Überblick über den materialgerechten konstruktiven Einsatz dieses ambiva­lenten Baustoffs. Die Grenzen des Entwerfens setzen die Physik und das Gesetz: Dieses Buch geht daher auch auf die Kennwerte der Basis- und Veredelungsprodukte sowie auf die baurechtlichen Regelungen ein. Eine Auswahl hervorragender ausgeführter Projekte rundet den theoretischen Teil ab.

Should a therapist disclose personal information to a client, accept a client's gift, or provide a former client with a job? Is it appropriate to exchange email or text messages with clients or correspond with them on social networking websites? Some acts, such as initiating a sexual relationship with a client, are clearly prohibited, yet what about more subtle interactions, such as hugging or accepting invitations to a social event? Is maintaining a friendship with a former client or client's relative a conflict of interest that ultimately subverts the client-practitioner relationship? Frederic G. Reamer, a certified authority on professional ethics, offers a frank analysis of a range of boundary issues and their complex formulations. He confronts the ethics of intimate and sexual relationships with clients and former clients, the healthy parameters of practitioners' self-disclosure, electronic relationships with clients, the giving and receiving of gifts and favors, the bartering of services, and the unavoidable and unanticipated circumstances of social encounters and geographical proximity. With case studies addressing challenges in the mental health field, school contexts, child welfare, addiction programs, home-healthcare, elder services, and prison, rural, and military settings, Reamer offers effective, practical risk-management models that prevent problems and help balance dual relationships.
