RIBA to put focus on conservation

  • Comment

New president George Ferguson has pledged to bring conservation back to the heart of the RIBA. Speaking at the launch of the Department for Culture, Media and Sport's listings review last week, he admitted that the institute was 'not as good as the RICS'with conservation work and promised to rise to the challenge.

Conservation architecture has been dismissed as secondary to new building, he told the AJ, but he promised this would change. The new focus 'will run through everything we do, ' he said.
