Architect’s Handbook of Professional Practice The Architect’s Handbook of Professional Practice (Handbook or HPP) is the most comprehensive reference available about architecture practice. Its breadth makes it a unique one-stop resource for licensed architects, for professionals aspiring to be architects, and for those engaged in or associated with the building design community. As the centerpiece publication of the American Institute of Architects, the Handbook fulfills the Institute’s goal to “Be the Authoritative Source: Be the recognized leader for knowledge about the practice and profession of architecture.” (2010–2015 AIA Strategic Plan, p. 4 plan approved December 2009).
