Christine Murray Editor of the Architect's Journal commented that:
"The last five years haven't been easy. Fees and margins have come under pressure. Undercutting has been a plague. The words design architect and delivery architects have not only crept into our vocabulary, they've become commonplace. But as a group, The AJ100 has proved resilient - although you range in size, from 19 to over 200 architects, together you are formidable, employing a total of 26,000 staff in the UK alone. You shape the British profession, and you have the critical mass to change it for the better."
The prestigious Contribution to the Profession Award went to Richard Rogers, Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners for his outstanding services to Architectural industry (voted for by individuals from the AJ100 practices).
The AJ100 remains the authoritative survey of the largest architecture practices in the UK* and the awards recognise and celebrate the most innovative and successful practices in what has been another challenging year for the industry.
We would like to thank you all for your time and effort in helping to compile the data for the survey. This is key data that benefits the whole industry, painting a representative picture of the current situation.
