UKGBC report tackles homes, while London gets first WELL Building Standard office
The RIBA Education Department conducts a survey of schools of architecture and the data is used to establish the raw facts about architectural education in the UK.
'I'd like architecture to lose some of its ego. We need to come down off our pedestals, get into communities and get our hands dirty.'
'I see architecture as a community; it affects me so I want to be a part of it and contribute. I don't agree with those who say 'I can't be bothered to get involved'. I want to have an impact.'
'Judge people by their ability, not their disability and be interested in what they could bring to the profession.'
'We do ourselves a commercial disservice if we don't fish from a multicultural talent pool that includes both men and women.'
'Architecture is already a fairly exclusive profession and the financial realities of studying are making it even more so. We risk a future where an architectural profession will only be for those who can afford it.'
'I hope a role model can be imperfect and still add value if they are able to tell a story that people can somehow benefit from.'
'Diverse role models from different social and economic backgrounds are vital in proving that if you are incredibly passionate about what you do, you can make it as an architect.'
