I think its a lot like getting a driver's license. You read books or take a course in Driver's Ed [that's the theory], but you also must have behind-the-wheel experience [that's the practical aspect]. Now as you drive, after getting the licnse, you apply the theory, mentally, and do the driving physically. Same for architecture-- design it using theory-- throughout your career, but to get the projects built you have to be able to drawing them up, specify them and provide construction information, guidance and oversight. OK? To put a common concept to rest-- every one is not, and cannot be a designer [there are many, many types of architects, doing various needed tasks to get projects built.
