abstract

  • The exploratory study investigates the impact of professional architectural education on tendencies toward work collaboration. First-year Architecture Students and fourth-year students from Texas A&M University were involved in this research. The Maroon-White game was selected as my research tool. The study participants also took the human metrics test of Jung/Isabel Briggs Myres Typology before the day of administering the Maroon-White game. When the average tendencies to collaborate for the first-year Architecture Students and the final-year Architecture Students were calculated from the end results of the Maroon-White game, there appeared a mild decrease of 6.08% in the tendencies to collaborate from the first-year to the fourth-year. However, in order to achieve statistical power to validate these results further research needs to be done.
