Environmental Design Research Association Statement on the Proposed National Architecture Accrediting Board 2014 Conditions for Accreditation
Date:11/1/2013

human needs, to the triple bottom line of sustainability, and to environmental justice. Engaging in human-environment research is central to the mission of architecture practice and architectural interventions to address problems. Omitting this standard will negatively and critically impact the ability of future architects to anticipate, meet, and reflect user needs and aspirations at a time when many of their clients are now demanding it. Maintaining this standard helps address and reduce social problems related to ill-conceived environments, as well as attains a holistic awareness of how all facets of context, design, occupancy, and overall impact intersect and depend on each other.

C.9 2009 NAAB ACCREDITATION CONDITIONS
C.9 Community and Social Responsibility: Understanding of the architect’s responsibility to work in the public interest, to respect historic resources, and to improve the quality of life for local and global neighbors.

This condition has been completely removed in the 2014 draft. For architectural practice to be relevant and flexible enough to respond to the expected economic, demographic, technological, political, and cultural changes of the next decades, the education of future architects must be strongly connected to communities—both locally and globally. This is evidenced by the increasing demand for engagement through such global and community networks as Public Interest Design (http://www.publicinterestdesign.org/), the SEED network (http://www.seednetwork.org/) and Architecture for Humanity (http://architectureforhumanity.org/.

The EDRA Board of Directors is compelled to share its concern over the draft of the 2014 NAAB Conditions,
