The article elaborates on the failure of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, which was signed into law by President Barack Obama in February 2009, to help architectural firms (AF) in the U.S. to recover from the economic recession. American Institute of Architects' (AIA) senior director of federal relations Andrew Goldberg said that only 15 percent of AF had received billable work from the stimulus since 2009. Other AF claimed that the stimulus slowed work down and had a negative impact on 2009.
