Analysis of Practice

Your Profession, Your Story

Share your insight and shape the future of architecture

With your help, the Analysis of Practice will explore the evolution of architecture practice. To ensure the Analysis of Practice accurately reflects the current and near-future practice of architecture, NCARB is pausing ongoing data collection, and will continue in early-2021.


What is the Analysis of Practice?

NCARB’s Analysis of Practice will shape how the regulation of architecture evolves. In early-2021, we’ll be reaching out to you—the architects, designers, educators, and emerging professionals behind the built environment—to better understand your working life, how you collaborate with others, and what’s on the horizon for our profession.

Why should I participate?

We understand that every project, firm, and career is unique, and the way you practice depends on a variety of factors—including your personal style. That’s why we need individuals at every career stage around the country to share their perspectives. Your feedback will help influence NCARB’s experience program, licensing examination, and more.

Your responses will shape NCARB’s programs and initiatives over the next several years, as well as the way your local licensing board regulates practice in your state.

How can I get
