Interesting results emerging from the RIBA Future Trends Survey

Interesting results emerging from the RIBA Future Trends Survey | Architecture and Architectural Jobs | Scoop.it

The RIBA’s monthly Future Trends Survey was launched in January 2009 to monitor business and employment trends affecting the architects’ profession. Participants give monthly predictions for overall workload and staffing levels over the next three months, and are also asked about their workload predictions in key sectors: private housing, commercial, community and public sector. Practices are also asked on a quarterly basis about their current workload and staffing levels. The Survey is carried out by the RIBA in partnership with the Fees Bureau.

Green Rooftop Spruces Up ‘Museum Of Art’ In Seoul

Green Rooftop Spruces Up ‘Museum Of Art’ In Seoul | Architecture and Architectural Jobs | Scoop.it

It is hard to find a green space in a big city, so the firm SAMOO Architects and Engineers decided to incorporate a rooftop garden into the Buk Seoul Museum of Art. 

The environmentally friendly, geometric rooftops filter rainwater and insulate the museum, while its quirky shapes invite people to experience art on the rooftop gardens. 

Visit the link to take a closer look at this eco-friendly museum.

RIBA Journal : August 2013: RIBA Stirling Prize

RIBA Journal : August 2013: RIBA Stirling Prize | Architecture and Architectural Jobs | Scoop.it

This year’s Stirling Prize shortlist has less of a heavyweight flavour about it – and is all the better for it, says Hugh Pearman
 
In recent years, the shortlist for the Stirling Prize has attracted accusations of being a bit of a club for well-known established architects. So it’s refreshing that this year is the first time on the shortlist for five out of the six practices represented. Half of them are led by women – the first time the proportion has been so high – and two of these are based in Ireland. While by no mean new kids on the block, these are generally smaller practices who represent a diversity of approaches.

Too many architecture students are simply unemployable

Too many architecture students are simply unemployable | Architecture and Architectural Jobs | Scoop.it

The profession is calling for change in the Parts system and the institutes need to listen, says Christine Murray

 

Everyone agrees that architectural education needs an overhaul - to include the scrapping of the current Parts 1, 2 and 3 system - but that’s as far as consensus goes.

 

The ARB board discussed ‘a root and branch review’ of the possible routes to professional registration at its board meeting last week, but in the end couldn’t agree on the extent or scope. ‘The conversation swung around the table and didn’t resolve itself in an outcome,’ said Beatrice Fraenkel, chair of the ARB board. The board will revisit the question in September.

 

The white paper by the UK Architecture Education Review Group, rubber-stamped by SCHOSA, the Standing Conference of Heads of Schools of Architecture, is more definitive, calling for a break with the EU directive, allowing some schools to create qualified architects who can work in the EU and some who can’t, in a bid for greater flexibility.
