These data constitute the basis of analysis in GaWC Research Bulletin No. 128 “Globalization of Architectural Practice” and are also used in GaWC Research Bulletin No. 146 “Leading World Cities: Empirical Evaluations of Urban Nodes in Multiple Networks”.
The data are a subset of GaWC Data Set 13; they include just architectural firms of which there are 21. Because of the sparseness of the matrix, cities are restricted to those with total practice scores of at least 3 (i.e. they must have more than just one typical office). 104 cities qualify.
The final matrix arrays 22 architectural firms across 104 cities showing global practice values.
