Key trends that were just emerging before the recession - such as green building, lean construction and greater collaboration - have now strengthened. In response to this industry transformation, two studies were conducted that examine workforce issues: an industry-wide study and a comparison study of architecture students and practitioners working in firms. These studies reveal that near-term shortages of skilled, experienced workers are a serious concern. In particular, the study highlights the growth in green construction and the potential for shortages there.
