Architecture Billings Index Continues Positive Momentum

On the heels of its highest mark since 2007, the Architecture Billings Index (ABI) jumped more than two points in December. As a leading economic indicator of construction activity, the ABI reflects the approximate nine to 12 month lag time between architecture billings and construction spending.

The American Institute of Architects (AIA) reported the December ABI score was 54.2, up from a reading of 52.0 the previous month. This score reflects an increase in demand for design services (any score above 50 indicates an increase in billings). The new projects inquiry index was 62.6, up slightly from a mark of 61.4 in November.

“This is more promising news that the design and construction industry is continuing to move toward a recovery,” said AIA Chief Economist, Kermit Baker, PhD, Hon. AIA. However, historically December is the most unpredictable month from a business standpoint, and therefore the most difficult month from which to interpret a trend. The coming quarter will give us a much better sense of the strength of the apparent upturn in design activity. ”

Herzog & de Mueron Office Building in Switzerland

Herzog & de Meuron recently completed this cantilevered office building in Allschwil, Switzerland. Called the Actelion Business Center, the structure is composed of rectangular volumes that appear to hover over one another like blocks in a game of Tetris. The center is equipped with energy-saving features like self-shading and solar panels and also boasts grass-carpeted terraces that reduce stormwater runoff and keep the building cool.

Inspiration: NYC Subway

Inspired by his love of New York City, architect Adam Kushner transformed this West Village apartment into a stunning space highlighted by a collection of repurposed parts. Salvaging pieces from the city’s subways, as well as cutting boards from local delis, Kushner was able to beautifully (and inexpensively) revamp this penthouse into a destination teeming with character. The project is not only impressive in its use of recycled materials, but has also been immaculately executed, becoming a source of inspiration.
