What do you call a group of architects?

Wood Guy

Over on the EntreArchitect forum on Facebook, somebody asked this question. A group of birds is a flock, gaggle or murder; there are herds of deer and schools of fish. What's a good name for a group of architects (or architects and designers ;-)?

A group of architects is called a "Reveal Dichotomy"

A group of designers is called a "Pastiche"

Feel free to steal it and post on the Fb group. I peruse it on occasion but refrain from commenting… I don’t know how long I can keep the snark inside.

I usually consider a group of architects to be a 'cluster' for obvious reasons.  But I suppose if I was trying to be more clever, I'd say a 'volume of architects' or a 'measure of architects'.

Wasn't there a thread on this some time back?  Or maybe a digression on TC?  There were some funny entries.

Maybe, I don't recall. If you're on the EntreArchitect forum, as several here are, the thread was posted within the last week or so.

A "spandrel" - decorative but structurally extraneous...

I propose: "A disagreement of architects"

A gaggle - no that's the sound we make. 

A murder - no, that's what we do to each other

A parti - nope - we don't have fun at all

Annoying.  That's what a group of architects is.

Or, in the spirit of a murder of crows, how about a slaughter of architects? But it's pronounced slaff'-ter.

You stole my thunder, proto. I almost posted that earlier for academic architects, but couldn't come up with another for ordinary, working architects. Touche'

Snarky side might say a "Group or Pompous Asses", a "room of full of farts", and other not so pleasant words.

Maybe I might call it fumaroles.

sarcasm and snark aside, I might agree with what others above have said but kind of like the saying "fumaroles of architects" or "fumaroles of archifarts".

A draft of architects.  Applicable with several definitions of the word "draft"

Another term would be a scrum of architects. 

One dictionary lists the definition of scrum, besides the Rugby association of people banging heads together, as  "a disordered or confused situation involving a number of people".

That would be perfect for a group of Software Architects:

Granted, it might be suitable also for other architects (looks at you and Frank)

You could have a pride of architects but maybe that term should be left for a group of starchitects.
