Abstract :
Presents a description and analysis of the demography of the community of notable architects from the Renaissance to the present, based on data from the Macmillan encyclopedia of architects. As a historical description, provides data on the growth in numbers and national composition of the architects included in the Encyclopedia; their activities outside architecture; their master-pupil and collegial relationships; and the pattern of their productivity through life. Shows unexpected patterns in the historical growth of this community, which are explained as the result of some simple but deep sociological properties. ;
