The AIACC encourages our members to participate in The Architecture Lobby survey. The Architecture Lobby is an organization of architectural workers advocating for the value of architecture among the general public and of architectural work within the discipline. From the bottom up, it resists the acceptance of low wages based on the assumption that architectural firms themselves make little profit. From the top down, it rejects thinking that accepts marginal profits for the architectural expertise.
The Architecture Lobby has devised a survey that asks questions of those working in the architectural discipline regarding their background, satisfaction, benefits and compensation. The aim is to accurately represent both the variety of design workers in architecture—many of whom are not registered or not members of the AIA—and the multiple ways in which satisfaction and reward are measured. An accurate description of the current discipline is the first step toward improving it.
