The production survey has now need up since late October and we have a couple of things to report. The response has been good; particularly when you consider the commitment need to tackle the monster, we have respondents from, Australia, Canada, Colombia, France, India, Iran, Israel, Netherlands, New Zealand, Romania, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland, UK and the USA.
So far I’ve made a couple of observations. First, only three female architects have participated, plainly we need more female participants. Secondly a number of people have commented on how thought provoking the questions are! Which is very pleasing as not only are we doing some research, but it seems that the survey has provoked discussions in a number of architecture teams about how they do architecture, which can only be good. It seems that we’ve achieved some unintended give back already! I’d be very interested in hearing how these discussions evolve and any consequences.
Once again I’d like to thank those who have invested the time and effort to battle through the survey and urge those of you who have partially complete surveys to complete them. To those who keep “meaning to get to it” to do it! Remember in architecture there is always something that has to be done, before the first thing can be done! Sometimes you just have to do it!
