Architecture Week 2006 gets going with call for volunteers

The organisers of next year's Architecture Week are calling for those in the professsion to help the annual 'celebration of architecture' reach an even bigger audience.

Last year architects held almost 700 public events across England, ranging from film-screenings to tours of new buildings and even discussions involving whole communities.

Now the backers of Architecture Week 2006, including the RIBA Trust and Arts Council England, are asking designers, artists and art organisations to come up with ideas to draw in new audiences.

Next year's event, which runs from 16 to 25 June, will be the 10th Architecture Week. Set up in 1997, the nationwide initiative is aimed at helping the general public explore contemporary architecture in a fun and informative way.
