Celebrating the next generation of black architects: Newly qualified

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.
