ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||Trends within the architectural profession and the building industry are leading architects to shift away from their traditional roles. These developments impact the client's perception of the architect's services and his responsibilities. The purpose of this dissertation is to determine what selection criteria Singapore developers use when they select an architect for their project. This dissertation begins with a description of the architect's traditional role and responsibilities. Different demands affecting the traditional roles of the architects will be examined, followed by, a review of the potential new roles of architects in the building process. The author examines theories of selection process and reviews the ten different selection criteria suggested in studies by architectural professionals and writers. These criteria form the basis of a survey questionaire which was sent to 65 Singapore developers, of whom 74% responded.
