RIBA to call on secret service in counter-terrorism classes

  • Comment

The RIBA is set to go undercover to educate architects in how to use their skills to counter terrorism at a new one-day course - 'Designing Out Terrorism'. The organisers claim there will be representatives from MI6 available to give advice on the latest threats both at home and abroad.

The RIBA's head of continuing professional development, Joni Tyler, said: 'Architects and other professionals can play a crucial role in constructing and developing buildings and urban areas that protect people from the impacts of terrorism.'

The workshop will be led by two security experts - Bob Knights heads up the Designing Out Crime Association while Heather Alston is a serving member of the Essex Constabulary and is a counter-terrorism officer.

For details of the £175 workshop - at Portland Place on 10 September - call Joni Tyler on 020 7307 3697.
