AIA Report on University Research (volume 5)

In this fifth volume of the American Institute of Architects’ Report on University Research, the authors look back at their work previously supported by the AIA Research for Practice program and the Upjohn Research Initiative. By making their own past research the subject of their current research, they assess its impact on people and profession, improve their methods, and draw new connections that only time can bring to the surface.
