  • Comment on: Ian Simpson Architects to rebrand to recognise Rachel Haugh

    JANE DUNCAN's comment 9-Sep-2014 12:15 pm

    I am absolutely delighted to hear this news, and hope that the re-brand brings vast rewards.

  • Comment on: Number of women architects on the up

    JANE DUNCAN's comment 28-Aug-2014 9:18 am

    The news of a slight rise in registrations is of course heartening, but the core issue is retention of these architects. Attrition rates are still deplorable, glass ceilings still exist, and practices need to put in place people and work/life friendly cultures to retain the best employees. Guidance on it's way from RIBA.

  • Comment on: Architects welcome Gove's departure

    JANE DUNCAN's comment 16-Jul-2014 9:13 am

    I hope that the RIBA will encourage Nicky Morgan in her new role to take a fresh look as soon as possible - to make her mark before the election. The unfortunate school buildings legacy of her predecessor requires a sharp turn around. It would be sad if this new minister were to be given no time to achieve more than window dressing and electioneering.

  • Comment on: Michael Gove branded a 'hypocrite' as he picks BDP for HQ

    JANE DUNCAN's comment 8-Jul-2014 1:33 pm

    Perhaps Mr Gove has actually come to his senses, and sees the considerable value in using great architects?

  • Comment on: RIBA sets up global ethics group following Israel controversy

    JANE DUNCAN's comment 23-Jun-2014 8:58 am

    Stephen Hodder and Peter Oborn have my full support in setting up this working group to help establish a formal set of guidelines for the Institute. However it is vital that the workings, decisions and outputs from the group are fully transparent, and agreed by Council prior to being formalised. Too much seems to go on behind closed doors, and this is an area which could impact all members.
