Over 500 students and architects attended the RIBA Annual Lecture 2018 series in partnership with our fabulous South West universities from October to November. Seeking to inspire the next generation of architects through the stories behind award-winning and innovative architecture, and journeys into architecture, the lectures mixed up students and practising RIBA architects to stimulate new student-professional connections. Talks also provided a window into the work of the RIBA.
The 2018 series launched at Plymouth University on 5 October with Stirling Prize winning founding director of dRMM, Alex de Rijke. This was followed on 9 October at University of Bath with another founding director of dRMM and chair of the Independent Design Panel for HS2, Sadie Morgan.

On 18 October at Arts University Bournemouth, we listened to director of AL_A, Alice Dietsch. The series was concluded on 29 November at UWE Bristol with director of Mole Architects, Meredith Bowles. Mole Architects won the RIBA Stephen Lawrence Prize 2017 for The House Boat at Poole.

Our 2019 series launches in the autumn with a similarly inspiring and thought-provoking range of architects.
The series was supported by Fineline Aluminium.
