The fundamentals of value delivery for architects have remained largely unchanged since Benjamin Latrobe rode the Virginia countryside plying his architectural trade to the builders of the new republic. The design and construction propositions have evolved considerably since then, but practice models are essentially based upon the exchange of time/services for money. Twenty-first century trends in digital delivery, automated construction, data analytics, and integration are clues to potentially refactoring these models, with new possibilities emerging in for the roles, responsibilities, and value of architectural practice. This talk will explore several strategies for new value creation in both theory and practice, and include examination of several next-generation firms who are setting the pace for the future.
