Hello, It's been a while since my last post. I have taken a renewed interest in this Blog and will continue to write  about the changing world of architecture through my eyes.
Well... It's March of 2012 and the health of architecture is still shaky. I was laid-off in 2009 and every year since then, I have hoped that the economic component to a healthy Architectural Business model would improve. Unfortunately it has not. I just recently tested the waters with some cold calling to firms to see if any positions were available. All gave the same response. They are also looking for a recovery that has not materialized yet. Construction is at an all time low. Competition for work is intense. Several people I talked to at firms said that there seems to be new players showing up at bid meetings. Something has to change soon.
