Derbyshire, Jones and Salter in three-man race for RIBA presidency


For the RIBA to even exist in 10 years, architects need to be put front and centre in priority. It has to be led by someone who earns their living from being at the coalface everyday - and who understands the highs and lows of practice - unshielded from the effect of recessions on your paycheque. It needs to be led by someone who is not embedded in the RIBA machine - who has sufficient distance to carry out the very tough decisions needed. It has to be led by a practising architect who knows the bottom line.We a practising architect and employer of architects with vision, time, resources and passion. It is also refreshing to see someone championing architects at last. That is no.1, everything else follows.
