New RIBA president must widen profession

  • Comment

A recent construction industry survey indicates that other than architecture, intake into trades and professions is in consistent decline.

This must represent the best opportunity in decades for the architectural profession to redefine its role and spread influence within the industry.

By broadening Part 2 funding to encapsulate training for other professions, it might be possible to achieve the enlightenment of the industry as a whole that is so desperately needed. Just think of the benefit of project managers, contract managers, agents and developers with an architectural understanding.

Change of this nature can of course only be driven from the highest level - presidential candidates take note.

Richard Harral, London
