The lillies have come and gone around these parts and we're moving quickly into summer. And, it's probably time to bring this blog out of hibernation. There's a lot moving within the profession these days - NCARB's announced a movement to try and finally address one of IDP's core problems (and it's generated a little... discussion); firms are merging again; and the economy is picking up, construction is still lagging behind the overall recovery).
I'll be writing more frequently - all the time off (trying to keep up with our own firm's growth among other items) has created a backlog of topics to touch on.
For the weekend, take a quick read through Kevin Ashton's reminder that saying 'no' may be the most positive act of creativity...
Central to the blog is a long running interest in how we construct practices that enable and promote the kind of work we are all most interested in. From how firms are run, structured, and constructed, the main focus will be on exploring, expanding and demystifying how firms operate. I’ll be interviewing different practices – from startups to nationally recognized firms, bringing to print at least one a month. Our focus will be connecting Archinect readers with the business of practice.
