2017 AIA Foresight Report (PDF)
The 2017 AIA Foresight Report, the product of a partnership between the AIA and DesignIntelligence, scans the environment of architectural practice in order to provide a deeper and more useful understanding of the context in which architects practice. The report is comprised of information from public and private or proprietary sources, as well as insights from subject matter experts and industry thought leaders.
The Foresight Report is not meant to make predictions of what will happen in the future, nor is it intended to cover the entire breadth of trends facing the profession or society at large. However, it can be an invaluable aid in strategic planning and decision-making by helping readers develop scenarios of how the context of professional practice and business are changing.
The Foresight Report is divided into three major sections: Operating Environment, Business of Architecture, and Professional Practice. Each discusses trends and insights that affect the practice and business of architecture on varying scales and with different areas of focus.
