Abstract

Nowadays, in Algeria, the institutional and practical context differs between the profession of architects and engineers. The latter are devoid of the concept of an oath. This concept can be the catalyst and generator of responsibility, equality, and merit between these two professions. To achieve complementarity between these two professions, an approach based on a questionnaire and interview on this situation is carried out at architectural design offices and minimal technical design offices in Algeria in order to bridge the gap created by the division of labor. Nationally, the work situation is sequential and linear. I.e. the engineer works under the responsibility of the architect. At the international level, the process is organized between architectural design offices and technical design offices, an iterative process. How to achieve this culture of complementarity of international practices. To validate this oath-based complementarity, this article reports on the results obtained and the prospects envisaged following this study.
