The RIBA should make this against the Code of Conduct for Architects..
I'll put it on the wish list
Comment on: Court orders fake architect to cough up £5,659
A lot cheaper than getting an architectural education (c.£100,000) and still not knowing much on exit..
There could be an alternatvie route for those without the desire for debt or the means to finance 5 years of study.
An alternative eduction of 5 years spent between architectual offices, artist studios, building sites and services/structural engineers offices and the odd £2000 fine is much better value.
If any of my kids show an interest in architecture I will suggest this to them.
Come on RIBA - pull your finger out!
Take a lead in architectural education before the market does it for you.
Support architects instead of just promoting architecture.
We've got plenty of ideas of what you could do with an inkling of desire to improve the standing of the profession.
Is the RIBA a golf club or a Union? Have never quite understood.
Is its role to promote Architecture or strengthen the professional practice of the Architect?
A longer term paid presidential role that addresses the challenges facing the profession seems the only way forwards.
The profession is losing relevance, despite the excellence of the new generation engaging in practice, and the RIBA is increasingly sidelined due to a weak leadership structure that needs to change.
The failure of the RIBA to lead on changes in education is a painful reminder of its current shoe gazing impotence.
A properly supported president that has a sufficient term to affect change would surely be a good thing for us architects?
Good news - hope this sets a precedent.
Desparate need for this.. without this being factored into developers site appraisals escalation in land values will not be addressed
Thanks Jane for an energetic tenure...
Can't we however have a longer presidency?
The architectural profession faces numerous challenges particularly in changes in education and stewardship / protection of the profession.
The two year presidency doesn't seem long enough to forge strong leadership..
The RIBA is, after all, our Union and not a golf clulb.
Am I alone in thinking this?
