Group pledges to promote innovation in product design

  • Comment

A group with the aim of bringing architects and product designers closer together was launched at the RIBA in London on Monday.

Called Product Innovation in Architecture (PIA), its stated aim is 'to encourage and facilitate innovative product development in architecture'.

Membership of the group is open to architects working in practice or in industry. It is also open to manufacturers committed to innovative development and to those interested in how architects and manufacturers can collaborate to improve materials and design.

The PIA aims to operate through cluster groups organised around materials and processes that can exchange ideas within themselves and with other groups. It will also organise visits and promote members' products and innovations.

The launch was introduced by RIBA presidentelect George Ferguson, who said: 'This is exactly the sort of development that I want to see under my presidency.'

For further information contact PIA on 020 7377 2090 or e-mail info@piaforum. org
