RIBA should be showing others how it's done

  • Comment

Three client references, previous experience and I don't know what demanded for the RIBA bar. These are not the requirements of an intelligent client.

Clients have work to do. When the architect is young and inexperienced, they should be wise and steady. Wise in choosing the rest of the team, and steady with their brief and subsequent interventions. And when the architect is wise and steady, they may need to change their emphasis and encourage a little playfulness.

The RIBA needs to show the rest how it is done, not follow in their foolish footsteps.

Catherine Macdonald, Macdonald + Berridge Architects
