the value proposition

Welcome to Sounds Like Design’s growing database of evidence-based research that supports the Architecture value proposition. We add new and relevant research reports and papers to this page when we find them online, for architects to reference and use in their own practice materials.

Using evidence-based research is one of the most effective ways of defining and communicating the value of architecture to clients, stakeholders, potential clients, end-users and more. At Sounds Like Design we believe that every architect should take a more pro-active role in promoting the profession - and the benefits of design - to a wider audience.

If you come across some great research you’d like us to add to this list, please send a link to
