TECHNICAL & PRACTICE - UPDATE

The British Council for Offices (BCO) has just released 'Renewables and the London Plan', which argues that the 2008 mandate for 20 per cent renewables is a 'professional straightjacket, ' and that a mix of approaches is a more effective way of reducing carbon emissions. The paper is available to download at www. bco. org. uk/research/ detail. cfm? rid=90 A new Part 2 Diploma, validated by the University of East London, will start in September 2007 at the Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT) in Wales. The course's structure will be similar to the extremely popular MSc course where students spend one week/month at CAT and prepare the rest of the work at home. Tutors will include Tom Woolley, Grimshaw's Michael Pawlyn, David Lea and Pierre D'Avoine. The programme is currently in the final stages of RIBA and ARB approval.
