Success Through Architecture
Exploring the role of the contemporary architect and how those passionate about architecture are inspired by it and help create it
What is Success through Architecture
This project commenced in 2014 and explores and communicates the many definitions and outcomes of success during the process of studying architecture and becoming and practising as a registered and chartered architect.
Why Success through Architecture?
There is no readily available source of information on how architects and graduates of architecture currently locate and operate within the industry and wider world. This project started in 2014 with the aim to:
- Research and present a wide variety of roles architects have within practice and in other areas of the industry
- Undertake a series of interviews which will form a searchable database
- Provide role models for architects and those in the process of becoming an architect
- Help the RIBA develop their membership and support network for practice-based architects and those within the “extended profession”
Who leads Success Through Architecture?
STA is led by Alan Jones, Director of Alan Jones Architects and Dircetor of Education (Architecture) at Queen’s University Belfast. Alan is a member of the RIBA Research and Innovation Group and RIBA National Council 2017-18 and is Vice President (Education) of the RIBA (2015-18) and member of RIBA Board 2015-18.. He is currently an external examiner at the University of Dundee and University of Nottingham. His practice work has been featured in Domus, RIBAJ, Architects’ Journal, Blueprint, Architecture Today, the Sunday Times and a number of technical reference books.
What next for Success Through Architecture?
This is a holding web page for the project. During the summer of 2018 a more comprehensive searchable website will be created.
