Top 10 Fastest Growing Cities in America (Architecture and Population)

October 31, 2014

The architecture profession is more promising in cities that are experiencing an increase of population, whereas in cities that are decreasing in population (Detroit) the architecture profession is bare and not promising. There are exceptions as some cities are stable population wise but increasing in economic opportunities. Therefore the following list is based on the opportunity growth rather than just the population growth. The population distribution is changing as more people are moving South, perhaps to escape the unforgivable climate. Other factors include cheaper taxes, job growth and an all-around better economic status of the area.
