Comment on: The RIBA desperately needs a credible figurehead
Whilst Alan Jones has been an eejutt, this commentator sums up what is wrong with architecture from the london glitterati-
a dismal succession of provincial non-entities, what a condescending attitude which makes me dismiss her entire response.
Just one simple way to encourage more of this. VAT Free.
Since the RIBA has declared a climate emergency, it would be a great gesture if they paid the fine.
Dear Chris Medland
When have you EVER heard of the RIBA taking a practice to task and sanctioning them- NEVER EVER NEVER. I agree with the idea of a union, but now that architecture has become a neo-liberal profession, fat chance. Its a bit like the climate emergency. They talk about it and big statements, then have a meeting in big glass twofer with practices that bid for airport schemes. We practice what we preach. We pay the living wage ( as set by the living wage foundation) and I expect my staff to do what I work hard during their working hours an only if something is urgent, do I expect them to work like me- long hours!
Small market town practice- I can only dream of those salaries even at reduced rates!
