Hyett seeks help in quest to ease UK firms into the US

  • Comment

RIBA president-elect Paul Hyett is to set up a 'sounding board' of large UK architectural practices to help them gain access to the US market.

Hyett is looking for a dozen senior members from 'the kind of practices which, in terms of scale and experience, would be interested in working in the States but aren't doing it'. He hopes to set up a board consisting of both 'first-generation firms' such as Foster and Partners, CZWG Architects and Wilkinson Eyre Architects, as well as 'second- and third-generation practices' such as BDP, Chapman Taylor and Abbey Holford Rowe.

Hyett complained to the American Institute of Architects that UK firms are dissuaded from seeking work in the US because they have to form partnerships with local practices.
