This is true- The answer of deep-pocketed architectural concerns will be to hire young and if possible cheap young 3D e-draughstmen. Individual architects are being driven off the market more and more, and facing this competence will only increase this trend, for even if you are good at the thing, it may not be the more sensible solution to tackle the task yourself.
What can we do?
It depends on what you want to do. Of course many of the 3D-able draughstmen know little or nothing about how things are built. This is the arcane of construction, and since they likely will stay centered in those of representation they won't be as ood on this. COntrarily some may conceive magnificent rooms or object-architectural items ... yet architecturally again they will be void of the arts a true architect has, that combines a bit of everything, something in the line of what decorators have as a problem, they see well the decoration but further than than they may and may be must stay utterly blind. Of course this doesn't apply for the brightest, which are endowed of professional virtues as complex as ours.
This doesn't mean that 3D draughstmen and decorators can't be successful in carving a niche out of previous architectural practices, they are likely to do.
In any case I frankly think the share of the market rather depends more of ppracticalities deriving from connections between commissioners and professionals than their art. The art they assume they can purchase at low price, and sometimes they are right in their assumption.
