More than 37,000 aspiring architects were testing and/or reporting experience hours last year, a substantial part of the path to architectural licensure required by the 54 U.S. state and jurisdiction licensing boards. This and other insights are a first glimpse at the council’s 2015 NCARB by the Numbers report to be released in July.

Midcourse correction for building industry as demand slows
By Michael J. Berens
Hopes for a sustained rebound in the building industry have dwindled as indicators point to slower growth in the second quarter. Still, growth in most sectors remains positive, although not as robust as previously anticipated. In its Construction Outlook for the second quarter of 2015, industry consultancy FMI has readjusted its growth forecast for the year downward, to 5 percent from 8 percent in the first quarter. Even so, it projects total construction put in place will reach its highest point since 2008 by the end of the year.

Video: Dan Stubbergaard explores architecture's social impact through time and context
Arch Daily
"The role of public buildings should be the first to show quality, sustainability, and an embrace of the people," says Copenhagen native and architect, Dan Stubbergaard, in this recent video from the Louisiana Channel. In COBE: Monuments of the Future, Stubbergaard speaks in favor of architecture that reinforces the welfare state, beginning with the philosophy behind the process: "Our buildings are like a hard disk of our memory or history" says Stubbergaard, "and you can see that this was the best you could do at that time."
