ACE: The Architectural Profession in Europe 2016

Share this Post:


The ACE Sector Study is a biennial survey that collects and analyses statistical, sociological and economic data on the European architects, the architectural market and the architectural practices.


Based on responses from 27.000 architects in 27 European countries, the fifth edition of the study, carried out in 2016, was enriched with new research areas, making it, without doubt, the most comprehensive study on the architectural profession in Europe and an essential reference tool for all those interested in the architectural profession and the built environment.


The study allows to draw insightful comparisons between the European countries and thus to shed a new light on national situations. It helps to better understand how the profession has been affected and transformed by the economic crisis and offers a detailed picture of the new reality the architectural profession must face.
