This PDF outlines the Abstract, Index, Chapter Headings and Content of my PhD Dissertation The Social Construction of an Architectural Reality in Design Education completed at the University of Auckland in 1997. It deescribes how, across the world, architectural education serves the elite and already powerful, how the curriculum and the hidden curriculum operate to elide issues of power, social, cultural and environmental concerns, and how the system of education maintains its hegemony in the face of rising social and economic disparities. The full three-volume Dissertation is available on PDF for $US 150.00. To obtain a copy of the full document please click on the Paypal button on the front Page .
