It starts out a bit scary, but here's Planetizon blogger Rick Abelson's "Big Bang theory" on the future of the architecture profession aka how the industry will survive the economic collapse. Step One: "A dozen global engineering conglomerates (Nuclei) seize the opportunity to cherry pick and buy the remnants of large and mid-size architecture, planning, transportation, landscape, economic, graphic design, reproduction, operations and construction businesses. Depending on the ambitious nature of the venture, source building materials, nurseries and even financing companies could be included in the mix. Thousands, upon thousands of technical and management personnel become aligned under the Nuclei." [Planetizen]
