What should it take to become an architect?

The Architects Registration Board (ARB) is coming to Belfast to talk to architects about the future of the profession.

ARB sets the standards you must meet to become an architect in the UK. These standards are up for review. Essentially ARB is asking what capabilities should a person have after completing each stage of their architectural training?

If you have views on what those standards should be you are invited to attend this meeting: 

Time: Architects session at 5pm (Students session at 2pm)

Date: Tuesday 19 September 2017

Location: Radisson Blu Hotel, The Gasworks, 3 Cromac Place, Belfast, BT7 2JB.

Booking: If you would like to attend the event please contact Emma Matthews on emmam@arb.org.uk or 020 7580 5861 to reserve your place.

Local architect, Alan Jones who is Vice President for Education at RIBA said,

“Please make time to go to the meeting.

Reviewing the criteria is essentially reviewing the syllabus for architecture schools and defining the future profession – the qualities and behaviours, knowledge, awareness, skills and understanding that graduates are expected to have when they gain part 1, 2 and 3.

This is a very important debate for students, graduates, practice, universities, ARB and the RIBA – how we can mutually support each other to create a better, more relevant, responsible, engaging and paid profession”.
