About the Author:

Paul Segal, FAIA, is a partner in Paul Segal Associates Architects LLP, recipients of seventeen AIA awards for design excellence. A graduate of Princeton University School of Architecture, he has taught professional practice to generations of students at Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation. He is a past president of the AIA/New York Chapter and of the New York Foundation for Architecture (now the Center for Architecture Foundation), and past vice chairman of the Preservation League of New York State.

Review:

Professional Practice gives our changing industry exactly what it needs, a clear and concise road map to the design and building process. Paul Segal taps his many years as a successful practicing architect and educator to touch on just about every important challenge facing the profession, and yet leaves us with a healthy dose of new ideas and hope for the future.”
- Frank Sciame, President/CEO Sciame Construction and Development

“It is a pleasure to read a book in which the conscientious practice of architecture is accorded the respect it deserves. A precise and vivid account of the complex process by which buildings come to be designed and realized through the progressive interaction of clients, architects, contractors, and a wide range of technical and legal specialists, this is destined to be of equal pertinence to any of the protagonists commonly involved in the act of making buildings.”
- Kenneth Frampton, Ware Professor of Architecutre, Columbia University

“Paul Segal is one of the only architects I know who not only understands but truly loves both the aesthetic power of great architecture and the practical demands of the real world, and he has spent much of his career teaching younger architects that these things do not have to be incompatible. In this book, he explains clearly, concisely, and eloquently how architecture is not only an art and not only a business--how it has to be both.”
- Paul Goldberger, Architecture Critic and Dean, Parsons The New School for Design
