Educating archies

  • Comment

I don't know what Roy Landau would have made of the unsettled relationship between the RIBA and the ARB on education. It is doing nobody much good, since it deals with the symptoms of an underlying problem, not the causes. A wise observer makes the following points: first, there is a skills and experience deficit at both ends of the teaching spectrum, with too many older tenured teachers remote from practice, and too many younger teachers, the product of the present unsatisfactory system; second, there is a disjunction between preand post-qualification education, currently dealt with by separate RIBA committees; third, the institute has failed to engage fully with the university system - there is no longer a proper research committee. None of these problems is insuperable. Will they be addressed?
