AA architects by the numbers
I have been chatting by email with Dennis Mann, one of the editors of the Directory of African American Architects, about ways to give a historical view of the numbers. Currently the website list all of the African American architects licensed in the US. Personally, I was curious about the trends of the numbers: what years did the most architects get licensed? what caused the trend? are we doing any better in 2010 than we did in 2000? etc.
So Dennis sent me some of his data and I created these charts.
As you can see in the first graph there is definitely upward movement. However the second chart shows that, In the last 20 years, in some years 80 architects were licensed, while in other years barely 20 were licensed. I am sure there are many reasons for this. I hope to talk more with Dennis and other architect about this and chart some more of the data collected. What do you think?
