RIBAJ 120th anniversary party

RIBAJ 120th anniversary party | Architecture and Architectural Jobs | Scoop.it

One hundred and twenty years is quite a birthday. Celebrating its anniversary this November the RIBA Journal also marked its relaunch with a party in the rough and ready spaces soon to be transformed by AHMM into Derwent’s White Collar Factory.

Photographs: Alison Ellis

At the edge of Silicon Roundabout, or Old Street as you will still find it marked on maps, the party brought together a glittering crowd of leading architects and those who had been involved in the magazine over the years. The six surviving ex-editors, José Manser, Peter Murray, Amanda Baillieu, Richard Wilcock, John Welsh and Jonathan Glancey were gathered for a historic portrait with current RIBA Journal editor, Hugh Pearman.

Propping up the bar were architects with work as diverse as Joe Duggan, Peter Barber, Narinder Sagoo and Alex Haw while others travelled from Bath, Oxford and beyond to join the magazine on its big night. Patrick Theis and Soraya Khan, shortly due to be announced as winners of the RIBA’s competition to refit its own London annexe, joined the party fresh from their interviews. From beyond the profession were characters such as Hanif Kara of AKTII, leading light M&E engineer Adam Ritchie, Jeremy Till of Central St Martins and client Jonathan Falkingham of Urban Splash, as well as the photographers and designers that make the RIBA Journal what it is.

Hugh Pearman’s address kicking off with the RIBA Journal’s genesis in 1893 as a cost cutting exercise amalgamating two publications was welcomed by the appreciative audience. RIBA President Stephen Hodder drew attention to the magazine’s scoop on his private life in earlier years: that he mostly talked about architecture to his wife when in bed. After the reminder of that revelation Gerflor took to the stage to present the raffle prize of an original Stephen Wiltshire panorama of London to winner, architect Phil Coffey.

UK construction hits six-year high

UK construction hits six-year high | Architecture and Architectural Jobs | Scoop.it

UK construction picked up speed in November to hit its highest level of activity in more than six years.

 

The Markit purchasing managers' index (PMI) rose to 62.6 last month, up from 59.4 in October.

 

The higher the reading above 50, the stronger the growth in activity.

The reading comes a day after a related survey showed manufacturing output also strengthening, giving the chancellor a positive background against which to deliver Thursday's Autumn Statement.

George Osborne is due to provide his annual update on the government's economic plans.

 

Tim Moore, senior economist with Markit, said: "Construction activity continues to spring back to life during the final months of 2013."

 Curtailed

The Bank of England's schemes to boost mortgage lending gave housebuilders a shot in the arm.

 

Markit said domestic building activity was its fastest in 10 years.

Last week, official data showed the sector grew at 1.7% in the third quarter compared with the previous quarter.

 

The Bank of England last week unexpectedly curtailed its support for mortgage lending under the Funding for Lending scheme, amid evidence that mortgage availability had improved to the extent that it no longer needed support from that quarter.

 

Markit also said commercial construction grew sharply in November.

David Tinsley, UK economist at BNP Paribas, said the findings suggested the UK could soon recover the ground lost during the crisis: "These survey indicators are suggesting something like a 1% rise in GDP [gross domestic product] in Q4.

 

"If this sort of pace can be continued into 2014, then the level of UK output will have risen above its pre-crisis peak by next summer."
