RIBA president George Ferguson has put the creation of an 'institute for urbanism' at the heart of his term of office.

Speaking at his inaugural presidential lecture last week, Ferguson said he was determined to see the professions of architecture and planning working closer together.

He argued that the creation of a one-year urbanism foundation course for these professions would lead to a more coherent approach to urban planning.

'It is urbanism that brings together the built-environment professions and we should do all we can to open our doors to all those involved. There is no time to wait for the education system to produce the goods, ' he said.
