INDUSTRY UPDATES


12 architecture schools to offer 'Integrated Path' to licensure before graduation
Arch Daily
In an ongoing effort to ease the path to licensure, the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards has accepted proposals from 12 accredited U.S. architecture schools to implement an "Integrated Path" to licensure. The initiative would give students the opportunity to complete the Intern Development Program requirements and take the Architect Registration Exams prior to graduation. Students would not be required to pass all ARE divisions in order to graduate.

New architecture program at New Jersey's Kean University will limit the number of state residents
Insider Higher Ed
In pitching a new B.A. in architecture program to a state oversight body for approval, Kean University made an unusual promise — that it would limit the number of in-state students to 25 each year. The rest are to be recruited nationally and internationally — the program has links to China — so as to minimize competition with other New Jersey institutions.

Why glass matters in sustainable design
Architecture & Design
The basis and primary purpose of a building is liveability and amenity for humans, not just a low-energy-use box. A recent academic journal article implies that homes and workplaces cannot be energy efficient whilst also reaping the benefits of glass — light filled, comfortable, better quality spaces with an enhanced connection with nature. Perhaps the change that needs to occur lies in the hands of the designer, who must play a role in ensuring better building environments — designing more buildings, with more glass, that have exceptional energy efficiency performance.

2015 AIA Compensation Survey reveals moderate growth for architectural staff positions
The Journal of the American Institute of Architects
The AIA released its biannual Compensation Survey, which provides salary data at U.S. architecture firms. The report reveals that average compensation for staff positions rose 3.5 percent since early 2013 (or 1.75 percent per year), with increases for the major architectural staff categories, which include senior design and project management staff; architects and designers; and interns. The AIA reports that the compensation gains are modest, but have outpaced low inflation levels in the U.S. economy, and are expected to accelerate as the market continues to improve, as shown by healthy growth in the Architecture Billings Index.

How architecture graduates are animating the film industry
Arch Daily
After spending five-figure sums on their education, you might think that architectural students would, at the very least, continue in the architectural profession. However, as investigated in a new BBC Business article, many students of architecture "are using their newly-learned digital animation and design skills to break into the world of film." With a growing demand for both architectural and all other kinds of animations, the number of film careers built from architectural foundations seems to be burgeoning.

Why a major architecture firm is taking to Kickstarter
Wired
Bjarke Ingels, the superstar architect behind high-profile projects like 2 World Trade Center and the Big U, just announced his latest project ... on Kickstarter. The $15,000 campaign will finance the prototype of something Ingels calls the Vortex. It's a tower that will be affixed to a power plant he designed in Copenhagen, and it will emit a symbolic ring of steam for each ton of CO2 the plant emits. It's like a big ecological scoreboard.
