New RIBA boss Derbyshire pledges fightback against profession’s marginalisation

Comment

Gordon Gibb , you may be interested in this, or may not. It has nothing whatsoever to do with self serving inward looking education or creating only skilled designers, although that is part of it but instead addressing contemporary social, community and political issues and "what architecture as it is delivered has become and work out how to serve it or change it" I have set up new two year Masters project " Home " for my unit 2 at Scott Sutherland.Over two years we will undertake global research work into the design of Mass Housing - public, social, and developer led housing. This unit is a typologically based unit. To begin with we will gather information and conduct a comparative study of the following in a range of countries identified by students: - Housing Policy (Approach and Methods) - Procurement System (current and proposed, if any) - Programme (House Types, Densities, Shared Facilities) - Construction Methods Further, we will study the best public, social, and developer led housing projects from across the globe produced since 1918, and a study trip will look at mass housing from the 1950s, 1970s, and the past two decades. By the end of studies, students will detail and create an innovative housing project of their own, however the typological and international focus of the unit will be to position the students as extremely knowledgeable in the field of mass housing. I think you'll find that there are a number of great schools with highly talented students and very capable and committed faculty doing the same. I respectfully suggest you get out more.
