  • Comment on: RIBA confirms president is paid a salary – so how much do they get?

    F M WEAL's comment 6 September, 2018 8:36 am

    There was a survey sent out to ALL RIBA members before the honorarium was passed in Council and one of the questions was about support for an honorarium and there was good support for the idea. The idea, as Owen says, was to encourage those outside very large practices to apply - and since then we've had two female presidents.

  • Comment on: Blurred lines: clients need to know what a real architect is

    I wouldn't sign up to the BNI in the first instance despite a number of requests over the years - I believe that one is required to put forward other members on the network - and that I think is not compatible with the RIBA Code of Conduct...

    I am so sad to hear this. I worked there as a year-out student in 1976-77. I remember a kindly, clever man who was always at his drawing board early in the morning before most of us arrived. As a student we were compelled to use Rotring pens (which I hated) and I'll aways remember the day he came up and said "...it's about time I taught you to use a pencil.." and demonstrated how to weight the lines into to corners to produce elegant drawings and how fast it was a medium.

  • Comment on: Jane Duncan leads reaction to shock general election

    Just about to do the survey ....but then noted that Eastern England is ruled out as an area!....Shame on you

    So much for RIBA East which includes Norfolk/Suffolk/ Cambs/ Beds/ Herts/ Essex- few of which would identify with 'South-East England'. We in Herts and those in the lower parts of Essex might...but East Anglia has a proud tradition.

  • Comment on: Seven-year-old zero carbon school demolished due to leaks

    Just because one has a good hat and good boots it does not make an ugly building (this very small practice having designed one RIBA Regional award winner and a Regional Commendation plus a number of branch awards...). And the Japanese have rather lovely wide-eaved traditional buildings..
