CABE chief joins fight to save Cambridge's school of architecture

  • Comment

The campaign to save Cambridge University's school of architecture received a major boost this week after it emerged that CABE's new chief executive has written to the university authorities to ask them to issue a reprieve.

Richard Simmons responded to the campaign - which held a 500-strong demonstration in the city centre on Monday - by calling on the university's vicechancellor Alison Richard to save the school from the chop.

'CABE believes that investing in improving the research work of the school can only benefit students and the quality of practice more generally, and we urge you to put Cambridge at the forefront in this field, ' says Simmons' letter.

'I would like to reiterate that Cambridge-educated architects are among the best in the world, ' he added.

The school's future will be decided next Wednesday (8 December) at a meeting of the university's Regent's House.
