In Reply to: Why architects so underpaids in architectural firms. posted by Piya on March 13, 2003 at 03:39:29:
Firstly I'd like to know if this is a universal phenomenon.
I have spent considerable time to understand this phenomenon and i have a few questions that may throw some light on this query.
Do you think that Architectural firms get paid appropriately by their clients?
Do you think that there is a way in which an architectural firm can ensure continued jobs to ensure a sustained high pay scale for their employed architects?
Would you invest in tears that a fledgling firm necessarily sheds when the kitty goes dry?
I have offered a percentage stake in ongoing projects to architects, but that does not seem to interest them, they need assured astronomical monthly salaries,
It is my view that we as architects know very little about the "business" of architecture and anyway architecture practiced as a business does not remain architecture.
Even architects who bag major projects find the troughs too difficult to deal with.
I guess they need to conserve the monetary resources received from these paying projects to ensure sustained payment of salaries to their architect employees through years of working on low-paying projects.
My offer is open to any architect who can interest me with their conceptions and skills.
