The Architecture Council aims to promote teaching and research in the field of architecture, in particular by
- creating a national platform with international visibility
- positioning itself on fundamental issues of teaching and research, especially with regard to scientific evaluations
- maintaining contacts with politics, professional organisations and industry
The Architecture Council supports the dual education system.
The Architecture Council may – alone or together with other organisations – take on additional tasks in the interest of Swiss architecture schools. It ensures that appropriate communications are maintained with European bodies.
