Survey on the current situation and future challenges of the architecture profession in Catalonia
The Architects’ Association of Catalonia (COAC) is launching the survey Els arquitectes. Situació, oportunitats i perspectives (The architects. Situation, opportunities and perspectives), for which Open Evidence was entrusted with the technical direction and execution.
The objective of the survey is to analyse and describe the professional situation of the Catalan architects in detail. The results will allow to define the scope and evolution of the architecture profession in the last years, to assess the employment levels and professional development, and to identify the architects’ vision of their sector and future perspectives. The survey targets the architects that work in Catalonia, including those that are members of the architects association and those that are not. Obtaining reliable quantitative and qualitative data will enable to draw an accurate picture of the current situation of the profession.
In order to reach these goals, several institutions collaborate in the promotion of the survey, in particular, the schools of architecture in Catalonia. The results will be discussed in the Congrés d’Arquitectura 2016 organised by COAC that will take place during the second half of 2016.
