Our coastline extends from the square-mouthed bay of the Wash, through the breath-taking sands of North Norfolk and picturesque Suffolk, to the Essex towns that line the northern bank of the Thames estuary. Inland, we boast many historic towns and cities, and centres of academic and cultural heritage, as well as a network of county and market towns and villages. In fact, around a quarter of England’s market towns are located in the region. Known for its rural nature, and mainly low-lying, the East of England is a region of diverse landscapes, combining a rich built environment and archaeological heritage with swathes of agricultural land and sites of outstanding natural beauty.
What we do
Operating from a small office on the outskirts of Cambridge, we work with a vibrant network of volunteers and partners to promote the value of good design. This can include running school workshops, giving talks and tours of new architecture, campaigning at local level, giving awards to great buildings, keeping our members up-to-date in their training, and a host of other activities that stimulate discussion about our built environment. Ultimately, we are driven by a desire to improve the places and spaces that surround us; that we experience in our day to day lives; and that make a real difference to the way we all live and work.
Whatever your interest in architecture and the built environment, we’re here to help.
In addition to the national core CPD programme delivered in Cambridge and Chelmsford, we organise a number of extra CPD seminars developed around feedback from local members. All events can be searched for by location on our What’s On page, however you can download a quick reference to CPD events taking place in East region by clicking on the above links.
