Abstract

Prompted by the prevailing precipitancy among the Turkish architects arising from the concerns about the changes ahead of the profession in the outgrowth of country's European Union membership, the implications of the process for architectural companies are synthesised. This research presents the findings of 8 case studies on large size practices operating in Turkey and the UK. "The formulation of a vision of your practice and a statement of your aspirations should be set against a debate about the social and economic changes that are likely to occur within the ten year period" (Richardson, 2006). Hence, driving forces that influence the outcome of the strategic decisions of the practices are identified. Sequentially, the main aspects of architectural practice in Turkey are diagnosed and finally, it has been benefited from case studies by comparing and contrasting the findings with similar and larger practices in an advanced economy, in order to develop an understanding about the different pathways that might exist in the future for successful practices. Key words: Corporate Strategy, Organisational Structure, Strategic Positioning, Architectural Practices, Design Management.
