Measuring Up

Measuring Up is a research piece led by TERROIR Director Professor Gerard Reinmuth and Professor Anthony Burke (UTS) commissined by the Architects Registration Board of NSW.

The report examines the areas where architects add value to the economy beyond typical construction sector analysis and seeks to define where value lies in the work of architects beyond the bricks and mortar value of the construction industry. The report examines two questions;

1. What are the limitations of the architecture profession’s relationship, broadly, to current systems of economic measurement in practice and where might other value be found?

2. How does an understanding of new areas of value within architecture reframe the potential for innovation within the industry?
