Arbitrary?

But this ranking  of the best architectural schools of the United States is necessarily arbitrary because it includes many criteria. Indeed, for a student living in New York, a nearby school but less prestigious will be preferable to a school in Los Angeles more prestigious. The criterion of employability can also be considered essential. Leaving a school with a degree is not enough. You have to be able to find an interesting and well paid job. But it also depends on the reputation of the school, for example internationally. To make a big project in Asia or Europe, we will rely on the reputation of the school in addition to the CV of the candidate.

Important criterion

Finally, the most important criterion is the following: whatever the level of school, it is the motivation of the student that is important. Being first in school, even if it’s average, will sometimes be better than being the last of a prestigious school.

We will return regularly to this post to modify it and take into account the evolution of the reputation of these schools.

How to draw an open floor plan with Google

The real question is: how do I know who is interested in the house floor plan in the United States?
By doing research on Google trends, and stating the words floor plan, we see that the 5 cities that are most interested in these keywords are:

  • Austin
  • Boston
  • New York
  • Washington
  • Jacksonville

Open floor plan 1

Interestingly, the most popular 5 related queries are:

  1. House floor plan
  2. Floor plan
  3. Open floor plan
  4. Bedroom plan
  5. Floor plan design

Open floor plan 2

Related queries 1, 2 and 5 are logical and directly dependent on the related query floor plan. More intriguing, the related query 4 focuses specifically on bedroom. Maybe that means that people are more interested in Bedroom, which is perhaps the most interesting room for them.

Finally, the related query 3 is surprising: open floor plan. Why are people interested in this?

By searching on Google with this expression, we find explanations: it is open spaces. This means that many people are looking to make open space plans. And finally, it makes sense. When you want to buy a big apartment and you want to break walls to make an open space, it is essential to make a plan of the apartment beforehand to avoid doing irremediable things.

Mississippi, Arkansas, Alabama, South Carolina and Tennessee are looking for house plan

We do not always know, but Google’s tools can give good information about construction.

Imagine I want to invest in buying a house. I’m going to get some land to buy to build my house. But most importantly, I will try to make a plan of my future home.

As a result, by searching for example on the search engine of Google, I will look at the proposed suggestions with house plan and I would know what is the most requested with house plan. Of course, he does a private search, otherwise Google will give me information around me.
More interesting, you have to use Google trends.

By pointing to a house plan, we can see that the American states in which this expression is most in demand are: Mississippi, Arkansas, Alabama, South Carolina and Tennessee:

5 states

But doing the same house plan search with cities, Raleigh (North Carolina), Atlanta (Georgia), Washington (Columbia), Plano (Texas) and Austin (Texas) are found:

5 cities

If we cross the information of states and cities, we can think that the most interesting places are in Texas and North and South Carolina.

I think we should build a computer program that predicts what the real estate market will be based on the house plans that are requested by Google users.
