After the economic crash of 2008, the building industry saw a forced departure of many mid-level leaders which never quite returned. Today there are different circumstances, but there could be a similar outcome. Jason and Dimitrius discuss the possibility of another mass exodus, some of the reasons behind it, the good and bad of it, younger professionals wanting to be self employed, a movement to industry adjacent work, and more!

Dimitrius references an article in Architectural Record, America’s Top Architecture Schools 2020, which highlights results from the annual Design Intelligence Survey.
