The RIBA's London Region represents some 12,000 members and over 1,000 chartered practices in the capital. London is one of the world's more open and international cities, with perhaps the highest concentration of design talent found anywhere in the world. It's that concentration of talent, exchange of ideas and constant innovation that make London such an exciting and vibrant place to work in the field of architecture.
As well as our extensive public-facing programme, we also work closely with all our members - from students to starchitects - to provide support, development and training to help them maintain their global reputation.
