Blair's environmental design boost welcomed by RIBA

  • Comment

RIBA president Marco Goldschmied has welcomed Tony Blair's call for 'new ways of building' to protect the environment.

On Tuesday the prime minister focused on improving building design and using brownfield sites as he unveiled a £100 million environmental research fund. 'We must protect the whole earth, and do so by pioneering new ways of building, working, living, ' he said.

'He has committed himself to architecture and now he has embraced what is potentially a quite radical environmental agenda, ' said Goldschmied. 'It is implicit that we are looking at high density development. It means that architectural skills are vital if we are going to succeed.'
