Architectural Firms in World Cities: Nodal Size and Network Connectivity

P.J. Taylor


Basic results derived from GaWC Data Set 15.

These results constitute results in GaWC Research Bulletin No. 128 Globalization of Architectural Practice, and are part of the analysis in GaWC Research Bulletin No. 146 Leading World Cities: Empirical Evaluations of Urban Nodes in Multiple Networks.

As with GaWC Data Set 13, because engineering/architectural projects are short-term in many of their office requirements, two sets of results are shown:

  1. Nodal size the sum of the global practice scores for 104 cities
  2. Network connectivity the usual measure of how deeply embedded cities are into office networks, which may be less relevant given the temporary nature of the offices in the 104 cities
