STATE OF PRACTICE
It’s very apparent that the state of practice has evolved, but how will it change in the future? In our first ever issue on the state of the profession, we examine current and future trends that impact how we do business.
June 2015 – Volume 13, Issue 03
In our post-convention issue, we recap many of the events that YAF was a part of and others that we found extremely valuable to the profession. Our special guest editor is the YAF's Advocacy Director and resident resiliency expert, Illya Azaroff. We have laid out stories about young leaders who are truly involved in the effort on resilience, as well as the broad spectrum that architects can get involved in. Resilience is more than a buzzword and is a great opportunity for architects to prove their impact to their communities, region, and beyond.
