Architecture for Social Purpose forms a key strand of the RIBA’s latest five year strategy. We aim to place social purpose, professional standards and ethics at the heart of action and debate about architecture and the profession.
This work supports a key pillar of our 1834 Charter which outlines the role of the RIBA as ” the general advancement of Civil Architecture…… as tending greatly to promote the domestic convenience of citizens, and the public improvement and embellishment of towns and cities”.
As part of this commitment the RIBA operates a Code of Conduct which aims to maintain the highest professional standards amongst our members. This is supported by a variety of RIBA professional activities and resources.
