NCARB is studying how technological advances and shifts in practice could impact the future of licensure.

Washington, DC—What will the role of an architect look like in 25 years? As part of a multi-year effort to ensure licensure programs and standards keep pace with an evolving profession, the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) is sharing insights from its Futures Collaborative. Established in 2017 to explore challenges and opportunities facing the profession, the collaborative is composed of leading architects, experts in emerging technologies, and architectural licensing board members.

Over the past two years, members have met with innovators in the AEC field who are embracing cutting-edge technology, data analytics tools, and design solutions. By asking challenging questions, the collaborative’s goal is to understand trends that could transform the way NCARB, and its members, facilitate the licensing and credentialing of architects. Eventually, the results of their work will be used to inform updates to NCARB’s education, experience, examination, and certification programs.

“While we won’t ever have all of the answers, NCARB and our Member Boards have a duty to ensure architectural licensure keeps pace with the world around us,” said NCARB CEO Michael J. Armstrong. “Understanding emerging trends and influences will help us prepare for the future—whatever that may bring.”
