Dickon Robinson to lead Building Futures

  • Comment
Dickon Robinson has been appointed chair of the RIBA and CABE's joint Building Futures initiative.

It was announced that Robinson will succeed DEGW's John Worthington at an event held at the RIBA's Portland Place headquarters yesterday (31 March).

Robinson said: 'Successful societies face unprecedented imperatives as they strive to create attractive towns and cities that facilitate economic growth while achieving social equity and sustainability.'

Robinson is an architect by training and was previously director of development and technical services at the Peabody Trust from 1988. There, he worked on the social-housing sector, including low-energy design and prefabricated volumetric construction.

Building Futures aims to explore the future of health, housing, education, urban change and the built-environment professions, with the ultimate goal of influencing policy decisions.
