I found this post when it exploded on Twitter last week. I believe it’s worth another look.
Thanks to Gregory Walker who shared the “cold cruel numbers” on his Archinect Blog titled mal-practice – the architecture of constructing a practice.
Mr. Walker shares a Washington Post story he discovered and includes the cornerstone of the article – a comparative chart indicating recent architecture graduates face an estimated 13.9% unemployment rate.
As a good journalist – or perhaps displaying an architect’s determination to mine something good from a pile of dung – Walker follows up with an opposing (somewhat more optimistic) view in his next post.
As much as I appreciate receiving feedback here, please add to this discussion in comment section of the original blog posts, linked above. Return to Building Content regularly for more curated content about the art and business of architecture.
