RIBA launches consultation on future of HQ

Portland Place
  • Comment

RIBA has opened a consultation on the future use of its headquarters at 66 Portland Place

The consultation is part of the institute’s 80-year strategic review and aims to aid the creation of a brief for the redevelopment of the Art Deco building.

The online survey will be followed by further focus group sessions before an initial masterplan is drawn up.

The institute said it wanted to approach the project with an ‘open mind’ so that it could create a new vision based on ‘real insight’ and ‘deep understanding’.

In November the RIBA appointed former Aedas director Sarah Williams to carry out the strategic review of the options for the future use of RIBA’s headquarters.

The building opened in 1834 and the plans are set to develop a proposal for the next 80 years of its use.

Williams, said: ‘This survey is the start of a detailed process which will include defining the role that 66 Portland Place plays in the RIBA’s long term vision and values. Our detailed consultation will gather views and ideas from our members, staff and other users of the building including visitors, neighbours, meeting room clients, cultural partners, sponsors and patrons.

‘I encourage everyone to participate to help us shape the use of this important building for the next 80 years.’

The strategic review is set to be completed in February 2016 with the results presented to RIBA council in March.
