Celebrating the next generation of black architects: Newly qualified

We're celebrating the achievements of newly-qualified architects as part of our Black History Month campaign.

01 October 2018

To mark Black History Month 2018, we're celebrating the black architects of tomorrow. In order to do so, we asked ED&I groups including; Architects for Change, the RIBA Women in Architects Group, Built by Us, RIBA Board & Council, RIBA Role Models and RIBA Practice Role Models to nominate a newly-qualified black architect or architecture student from either a Part 1, Part 2 or Part 3 course who has had an inspirational journey into architecture.

Meet Timothy Onyenobi and find out why his story is so inspiring.

Timothy Onyenobi:

  • Timothy qualified two years ago.
  • Timothy organises and was the primary sponsor of two EDI/BAME + Architecture and Mental Wellbeing events since qualification (Ben Derbyshire was keynote speaker and co-sponsored the 2017 version).
  • Timothy put together a research team of experts and organised a study on mental health issues among architecture students with the University of Manchester this year with the intent to publish findings which are currently being analysed.
  • From time to time, Timothy mentors BAME architecture/architecture technology graduates and students.
  • Timothy is the Architects for Change (AfC) lead on mental wellbeing for BAME architects and students.
