This paper examines one possible relationship of academic research and professional practice. It notes that this issue arises from particular national conditions that are not necessarily shared in different countries. As a result, this relationship is not equally visible or similarly understood, and hence models of research have national and even regional variations that threaten the transferability of architectural research across national boundaries, in contrast to established models of research from the sciences. The paper proposes a criterion-based response to this problem that seeks to identify common features of research and practice, thereby extending previous scholarship on the nature of academic research.
