Archispeak is a casual conversation about all things architecture, and we invite you to listen in as we talk about everything in the profession, both the good and the bad. Think you already know what architecture is really about? Tune in to find out.

#48 - Brain Drain

There is a crisis coming to the profession of architecture. Over the next 15 years the number of architects aged 55-64 will increase by 47%, while the number of those aged 33-54 will decrease by 6%. In Episode 48 of Archispeak, we discuss if this will become either a great opportunity for those willing to stay in the profession and help remake it, or will it be a catastrophic loss of valuable knowledge?
