  • Comment on: Chancellor to unveil £3 billion retrofit funding

    TrimTrab's comment 8 July, 2020 1:45 pm

    soem problems cant be fixed by just throwing money at them. this is hugely complex. We need clear uidance on how to retrofit terraces for example (it is impossible to use external insulation purely on your own property line without creating thermal bridges and moisture problems for example)
    There are real structural reasons that tis hasnt been done in teh past, the planning system and a whole lot of other thigns need reform to make this a reality and not just another grant for the wealthy to improve their existing large assets

    Is Architects Declare just another peice of greenwash? More husky hugging?
    Using the language of sustainability to sell fundamentally unsustainable projects is more than dishonest it is completely corrupt

  • Comment on: Candidates clash on diversity and climate change in hustings for RIBA president

    Why does Allford seem to be using Architects Declare to make sure that nothing is done about climate change?
    the time is far to late for activism and talk, we need definite action. Do any of the candidates even understand what the RIBA 2030 targets are and where they are and arent applicable? this is really amateurish stuff!
    Why did none of them mention the UKs commitment to zero carbon britain 2050, it is a very clear target that we shodul be leadding on as an insustry and bringing the whoel supply chain with us. the time for thoughts and prayers is over!

  • Comment on: Global names rally to support under-fire AA director Franch

    seems she is very well connected and famous and probably a good designer, but apprantly a terrible manager. Why do we assume that people who can draw or talk are inevitably able to manage large groups of people? I feel like this is a huge problem in our industry at large.
    Would you appoint a popstar as head of a record label?

  • Comment on: Head of RIBA’s new board quits after just two months

    That is the money of some of the worst paid people in the country that you are wasting on endless meetings. While you all decide what ridiculous bonuses to pay each other your members are being paid less than manual laborers and a sizable amount of them are about to be fired.

    The RIBA isn't and doesn't need to be a large complex organisation, it's just a small gallery with an email newsletter at the end of the day.

    What does the RIBA do that my local cafe doesn't?
