This introduction presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in the subsequent chapters of this book. The book describes structural models for academic administrators. In the book, James Benedict Brown identifies a larger spectrum of learning theories relevant to Live Projects, then directly cross-references them to his substantial research on UK architectural education. The book is made up of longer essays, grouped thematically, and a series of reference case studies towards its end. It concludes with Harriet Harris's reflective analysis of how a manifesto proves a highly effective agent in advancing an erudite entreaty for an incipient Live Project assessment strategy. The book also offers powerful evidence that neither social responsibility nor good design need be sacrificed. The book contains two reflective pieces on Live Projects. It explores appropriate learning theory references; still others depict case study projects, models for accreditation, speculations on beauty and utility, proposals for the common good.
