A recent construction industry survey indicates that, other than architecture, intake into trades and professions is in decline This must represent the bes opportunity in decades for the architectural profession to redefine its role and spread influence within the industry.
By broadening Part 2 funding to encapsulate training for other professions, it might be possible to achieve the enlightenment o the industry as a whole that is so desperately needed. Just think o the benefit of project managers contract managers, agents and developers with an architectura understanding.
Change of this nature can o course only be driven from the highest level - presidentia candidates take note.
