European Architectural Barometer

The coronacrisis has impacted society in many ways, but it also affected the construction industry. One way in which the construction industry has been impacted might be less obvious, but the impact is very profound; the changes in orientation behaviour. In the last couple of years, the orientation behaviour of European architects, already became more multi-channel with online sources increasing strongly. Also personal contact remained very important, since the construction sector is a very traditional one.
