    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The purpose of this essay is to compare the architect’s role in Sweden and Denmark. As geographical neighbors the countries differ a lot when it comes to innovative architecture. This may be due to several different factors, but with the combined impact, the roles in practice will be affected during the construction process. The aim of the essay is thus to describe and see what distinguishes the architect’s role in the construction process in Sweden from that in Denmark based on three selected categories:

     The construction process and its contract forms

     Economy and time

     The view on the architects’ role

    Method: The methods that will be used is literature studies and qualitative interviews. The interviews aim to explain the architects’ role and how they interpret it. The literature studies aim to present a clear purpose, provide a necessary factual background and design a relevant theoretical framework.

    Findings: Architectural qualities are neglected when the architect in Sweden lacks economic arguments and rarely gets to be as involved as other actors during the process. In Denmark, architects are more often given a more anchored role in the projects, which contributes to them being able to argue for the architectural qualities even during production.

    Implications: Through further education in construction economics and project management, the architect could play a more influential role in the construction process. The client should engage the architect in the early stages of the projects and in orderto maintain the original intention, the client and the contractor must understand the importance of architectural qualities.

    Limitations: The study was limited to investigate and compare underlying causes of the role differences with regard to the structure of the construction process and the contract forms, economy and time and the different actors’ views on the architect’s role for the architect as a consultant and not for architects who act as builders
