Core curriculum topic: Architecture for social purpose
To help you gain the skills you need to practise architecture now and in the future as a RIBA Chartered Member, we have defined 10 mandatory core curriculum topics to address through CPD.
The topic Architecture for social purpose helps you understand the social value, economic, and social benefits architecture brings for individuals. The topic covers improving life changes, social identity, cohesion, and wellbeing. It also addresses having the knowledge and skills to make informed, fair, and ethical choices and influence the project team and supply chain.
More detailed information around the topic is available in our CPD primer (PDF). This will be updated soon.
