Ritchie in university challenge to break engineering barriers

  • Comment

Ian Ritchie has been recruited as a visiting professor of architectural engineering at Leeds University in a bid to bring down the 'barrier' between engineers and architects. As founder of Ian Ritchie Architects, and co-founder of design engineer Rice Francis Ritchie, based in Paris, he will be lecturing on the four-year MEng architectural engineering degree at the university's School of Civil Engineering.

An immediate aim is to win ARB/RIBA Part 1 accreditation for the course, which is directed by Professor Neil Jackson. 'I'm very interested to be in the civil engineering department, ' said Ritchie. 'I took the role in an attempt to break down the artificial barrier that exists between engineers and architects. I feel very passionate about this, ' Ritchie brings a wealth of expertise from a variety of posts, currently including architectural advisor to the Lord Chancellor, Lord Irvine.
