ask an architect 2017 offers chartered architects across Northern Ireland a unique opportunity to raise funds to support local cancer research through clinical trials whilst promoting architecture and the value an architect can bring to a project. It is also an excellent platform to promote your own practice – regardless of your line of work. Sign up your practice today.
The concept is simple. A chartered architect offers an hour long consultation to a member of the public in return for a donation of £40 to the Jill Todd Trust in partnership with Friends of the Cancer Centre.
The Jill Todd Trust was set up to commemorate Jill whose life was taken by cancer. Jill was 23 and the daughter of local architect Barrie Todd. Thanks to our sponsors who cover administration costs and provide critical pro bono services, 100% of all funds raised by ‘ask an architect’ will be presented by the Jill Todd Trust to Friends of the Cancer Centre to support local cancer research through clinical trials at the Centre for Cancer Research and Cell Biology (CCRCB) at Queen’s University Belfast.
This year ‘ask an architect’ will run for the week from Saturday 13th May 2017 to Friday 19th May 2017.
The public will be able to select and book their architect online at a soon-to-be-launched ask an architect website. On receiving the booking the architect will contact the donor to arrange a suitable time, to help the donor prepare for the consultation and to agree whether the appointment would be best held in the office or at the project location.
Architects signed up to participate by 10th February 2017 will be live on the website and promoted at the SelfBuild and Improve Your Home Show on 17th February 2017.
