INDUSTRY UPDATES


NCARB examines how the architectural profession is changing
The Journal of the American Institute of Architects
The National Council of Architectural Registration Boards released its fourth annual report on the state of the profession, which revealed that the number of architects licensed to practice in the U.S. is growing. That number will likely continue to increase, as a record-high number of budding architects reported experience hours in 2014, more students are beginning the licensure process, and the age upon initial licensure keeps falling. The profession is also becoming increasingly diverse, with a rising number of female and minority aspiring architects in the licensure process.

The booming world of architecture that only exists in pixels
Gizmodo
There's a long tradition of great architects never building a single thing. They're called paper architects, because their work is purely 2-D. But today, you might look for them working somewhere else: video game design and 3-D visualization.

Green Building Elements

The most successful US firms of 2014 are ...
Arch Daily
Architectural Record has named the "Top 300 Architecture Firms" in the United States, ranking the nation's most successful practices based on their architectural revenue from 2014. Gensler, whose annual revenue surpassed one billion USD, maintained the lead for the fourth consecutive year. The firm's recent commissions, such as Los Angeles' Metropolis, help them set new records for revenue. AECOM, who came in second, also recorded significant growth — both internationally and domestically.

Sexism is alive and well in architecture
The Huffington Post
Sexism takes many forms in architecture. Possibly the most common is the profession's discrimination against women. While nearly half of architecture school students are women, their numbers quickly drop off after graduation. Among practicing architects, men still outnumber women four to one, and they receive nearly 28 percent higher pay, according to reports. A 2014 survey showed that over 60 percent of women feel the building industry doesn't accept their authority, and two thirds have experienced some form of sexism in their careers, often on a regular basis.

The top places to watch architectural lectures online
Arch Daily
The online lecture, similar to the podcast, is an easy, often entertaining way of absorbing knowledge and the opinions of thinkers and practitioners from around the world. We've gathered together some of our favorite sources for watching architectural lectures online. Ranging from Barbaralee Diamonstein-Spielvogel's famous American Architecture Now interviews with Frank Gehry in 1980 and Robert Venturi and Denise Scott-Brown in 1984, to Sir Peter Cook speaking at Frankfurt's Staedelschule in 2012, these open-source films provide invaluable insights into architects and architects throughout recent history.
