Grenfell Tower inquiry turns down RIBA's offer to help


Whatever the outcome of the enquiry which we must not pre-judge, the word 'architect' means nothing if the public cannot expect any architect to have understood the incendiary nature of the cladding system proposed to build out their concept design. You would surely expect nothing less of any profession. Where was the Duty of Care every architect owes the public? The abysmal technical training in our schools and lack of an apprenticeship-based education for architects is a factor the RIBA needs to reflect upon when it complains it is under represented at the Grenfell Tower enquiry.
