I don't know how many Architects are out of work now but over 4 million americans are out of work because it is time for a depression...and post 9/11 and economic slooooow down, so what do you do? During the last depression the government helped out by:

The Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS) which has the largest and most important architectural collection in the Library's Prints and Photographs Division. It began in 1933 as a work relief project under the Civil Works Administration. Its purposes were "to aid unemployed architects and draftsmen and at the same time to produce a detailed record of such early American architecture as was in immediate danger of destruction."

We don't have such programs to aid Architects like this anymore because we are too many now...with too few projects to record and drawing skills are by the wayside in honor of the computer which already has the record intact right? Hang in there and go out and beat the nations or worlds bushes harder, as there are plenty of jobs being listed... for Architects, Construction Management, Land Delelopers, Realestate Development Companies and Property Management Co's, Urban Designers and Interior Designers, and on and on...just get to it and find your niche'???
