Mission, vision and policies
The organization’s mission
OAR is fully dedicated to the regulation of the profession of architect, stressing the importance of moral and ethical values, of good practices, of high expectations and creativity and, last but not least, of academic challenges. The order takes on the mission of creating the legislative, professional, and competitive environment required for excellence in the multiple contexts of the profession of architect.
The Romanian Order of Architects aspires to developing a solid and responsible professional community, guided by its code of ethics, according to which the profession of architect is a liberal art in Romania.
Focussing resources on the promotion and consolidation of quality architecture, in all its forms and manifestations, will elevate the Order to the status of a unified voice of the profession in the community, nationally and internationally.
The Order is adherent to the status of architecture in Romania and in the world, adapting its policies subsequently. Its strategic directions aim at the cooperation among the various construction professions and the dedicated institutions, at the opening of the profession towards society, and towards the communities at whom it is geared, at the explanation and extension of the role the architects have in the life inside, among and in relation to buildings, and at a better visibility of Romanian architects worldwide.
The professional practice benefits from policies that aim at increasing the architects’ performance with instruments the organization makes available. In terms of legislation, our policies are geared towards the practice of the profession, but also to activities that have an impact on the built environment, on planning, on heritage and landscape.
Education for architecture is open, through training, both to future architects and interns in architecture, and to those interested in continuous education throughout their entire career. We are also interested in the education that leads to general knowledge about architecture, open to all. The order works towards communication policies among members, society, public institutions, and partners.
