A Study of Florida's Future Needs for Architects: 1973.
Mitchell, Bruce D.; Wittenberg, Dennis
During the past decade, Florida has become the fastest growing large state in the United States. This growth has resulted in a parallel increase in the demand for architectural services. The objective of this study was to employ several types of quantitative assessment of Florida's need for registered architects and then compare the need obtained with the projected number of architects who will be able to meet this need, given the current rate of increase in the number of architects being registered by the Florida Board of Architecture. Three types of assessment were used: assessment of registered architects to population; survey of all architects registered to practice in Florida; and consideration of expert opinion of educators and employers of architects. The conclusion reached is that the best way to increase the number of architects in Florida is to initiate an architect training program at one of Florida's state universities. Appendices include: the architect survey, observations based on findings of the survey, and the instrument used during campus visits to existing architectural training programs. (Author/PG)
