Voice of Architecture

About the Voice of Architecture Annual Study­

For the past two years, AIA Tampa Bay has collaborated with the Caruthers Institute to conduct a survey of local architects in order to measure upcoming trends in hiring, demand for services, economic development, design trends, and the role of politics in the industry. Continue reading below to learn more about the 2020 and 2019 results.­


Voice of Architecture 2020­

On February 5th AIA Tampa Bay Hosted the second annual Economic Outlook Forum to Discuss the results of the Voice of Architecture Survey. The panel discussion was guided by Kyle Parks from B2 Communications and included­­Angela Hendershot, AIA - Rowe Architects, Inc., Stephen Johnson, AIA - Harvard Jolly, Keith Greminger, AIA - Kimley Horn, and Jillian Bandes - Bandes Construction.­

The survey respondents totaled 71 area architects, half of whom are principals or managers. Nearly all the respondents were from Hillsborough County (78 percent) or Pinellas County (16 percent), though many of the architects in the two counties work on projects throughout the region.

Tampa Bay area architects continue to be highly optimistic about the region’s development-related economy in the longer term, and for the second consecutive year, Tampa Bay’s architecture firms are seeing a continued increase in demand for their services, are planning on hiring more employees, and are predicting substantial revenue growth – all signs that real estate development, a key driver of the region’s economy, will continue to be hot in 2020, 2021 and 2022.
