Welton Becket Associates, Santa Monica, and Ellerbe Associates Inc., Minneapolis, are planning to merge, a move that will place the new firm among the five largest design companies in the nation. MacDonald G. Becket, chairman of the Becket Group, and John J. Labosky, president of Ellerbe, have signed a letter of intent to merge their companies by late this year.

"U.S. architectural practice, like the American economy at large, has become vulnerable to offshore challenges," he said.
