RIBA to open new India chapter

  • 1 Comment

The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) is to open a new branch in India - its fourth International Chapter

With over 4,500 overseas members, including almost 100 in India, other International Chapters have already sprung up in USA (1997), the Gulf (2009), and Hong Kong (2012) offering ‘enhanced membership support’ networking opportunities and a forum for local activities.

The new Chapter will be inaugurated at a National Student Convention in Chennai, and will collaborate with the Indian Institute for Architects.

RIBA Head of International Chapters Chloe Sadler said: ‘This new Chapter will cement the RIBA’s commitment to support our members in India through knowledge exchange and the celebration of architecture.’

Director of Project Orange, James Soane, whose company has worked on sites across India, said: ‘There’s a lot of interest in British expertise for infrastructure, such as in hotels and residential [in India]. The UK can bring creativity to the table.

‘The interesting thing is there are a other countries such as Australia and France who have teams out there so there’s a lot of competition.’

  • I think that it's still Delhi, not 'Deli', as surely the local language version used in the city is 'Dilli'.
