That was no leak - it's done the rounds

  • Comment

Paul Finch's headline (AJ 29.1.98), 'Partial leaking of education plan no help to anyone', is misleading. Jeremy Till's paper to which he refers has been in the public domain for about a month, having been circulated widely within the academic community. The paper is important because it proposes a radical restructuring of the present arrangements. However, the paper is in draft form and at a consultative stage.

The current RIBA rev iew of architectural education under the chairmanship of Professor Sir Colin Stansfield-Smith is wide ranging and, as Finch points out, Till's paper is just one of many. Chris Colbourne (RIBA director of education) and I have encouraged openness rather than secrecy in terms of the development of these various discussion papers. At the moment, ideas are in draft form. From late spring this year, we intend publishing our draft findings for the widest consultation and debate. I hope that the AJ will be central to this process.
