For the years 1970 to 1975, the annual rate of increase was about 6 percent, but this rate of increase will become a negative value by 1980. These prospects offer a real challenge to the schools of architecture, to put it mildly. There are now about twenty-five thousand students in the schools, about three thousand of whom are scheduled to receive first professional degrees this June. Twenty-five thousand students equal 40 percent of the registered architects in the country.

The few large firms had increased their market share of the total billings. The increasing dominance of the large firms accelerates the transformation of professional practice into an industrial type of organization.
