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.

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.
We are a small practice working on high end residential projects in central London. We need someone with extensive experience in detailing to work through a variety of exterior and interior construction details on refurbishment and extension schemes. You should be confident drawing in Autocad as well as specifying, preferably with experience of NBS. You should also be self motivated and happy to operate on your own. In return we can offer flexible work hours and have facilities for remote working if desirable. We can also promise a great deal of work variety ranging from joinery details to integration of services and structure.
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.
