A Qualitative Approach to Architecture as a Creative Industry

Abstract: This paper aims to achieve a qualitative analysis of the creative phenomenon at the microeconomic level through a semi-structured interview applied to creative workers in the field of architecture. From the experience of those countries that encouraged creative economy through dedicated policies, we find that it has an important contribution to the establishment of the gross domestic product. We investigated various elements, such as: the peculiarities of the activities carried in the creative industries, including the importance of creative multidisciplinary teamwork; the role of symbolic products in the creative act, and the way in which consumers understand the creative act and the creator’s status; the way in which consumers identify themselves by consuming goods and creative-cultural services.

Keywords: Creative economy, architecture, qualitative analysis, competitive sustainable advantage
