Brexit fallout: Architect bodies join forces to demand free movement

Comment

Well, I think the first thing they should do is go kick both the RIBA Competitions Dept, and central Government, to start launching the kind of open competitions that Europe does so well, and we look down our noses at. Give our European friends a quid pro quo (and as a great by-product, our young talented practices a chance to compete against the same-old, same-old shortlist practices in limited competitions that we tolerate. Then they could decide what the RIBA should do, and what ARB should not do. I would then suggest that they count how many graduates we are producing in our Architectural schools (of whatever nationality), and then check what prospects for employment these people have. From that, they should be able to calculate how free the borders might be for incoming architects. I hope there is loads of room, and I hope our UK-bred Architects have learned enough languages to work abroad too. Olive Wahr, ce soir!
