Welcome to the September edition of RIBA International
In this issue we cover the vital work of the IAP (Institute of Architects, Pakistan) in its plans to reconstruct areas ravaged by the floods as well as details of how to contribute to the IAP Flood Relief Fund.
We feature the announcement of the winner of the Singapore Institute of Architects’ Gold Medal 2010 and also the announcement of the winner of the UIA International student competition. We also explore the unique opportunity offered to architects to contribute to the UIA Tokyo 2011 congress.
