AEA Consulting has released the 2019 Cultural Infrastructure Index. Now in its fourth edition, the Index seeks to measure investment in capital projects in the global cultural sector, identifying projects with a budget of US$10 million or more that were publicly announced or completed within a calendar year.
AEA’s analysis finds $7.9 billion-worth of new physical assets were completed globally in 2019 across 149 projects. Anticipating the changes that will be brought by the COVID-19 pandemic, the case studies in this year’s Index focus on the repurposing of existing spaces. +
