Weekly Poll (18)


A survey recently published by the American Institute of Architects indicates that the architecture industry has almost fully recovered from the recession and is seeing healthy profits. Do you feel that trend reflected in your business?


The recently completed U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis features transparent glass on its facade that could injure or kill birds in collisions, according to critics.

Good or bad decision?

Architect Rem Koolhaas recently told attendees at the American Institute of Architects’ 2016 conference that the architectural community needs an overhaul in terms of communication. “Architecture has a serious problem today in that people who are not alike don’t communicate,” he said, noting that differing opinions help deliver stronger design. Do you agree or disagree?

Municipalities and home owners associations have often ordered that homes in various communities need to be repainted because they didn’t conform to community rules or guidelines. What do you think of conformity rules when it comes to paint color selection?

Critics say that today’s “starchitects” are pushing design extremes that are structurally risky. What do you think?


"98 percent of everything that is built and designed today is pure s**t," renowned architect Frank Gehry recently declared with a middle-finger salute. What's your take?


Neighbors in a historic district are protesting a nearly completed modernist home that the historic commission approved, then a city board rejected. A judge may order the home torn down. What do you think?


What industry economic indicators do you follow most closely?


One World Trade Center’s spire has earned it the honor of tallest U.S. building. What should “tallest building” mean?
