Welcome to the London Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city, brought to you by New London Architecture.

Global education, global practice

05 July 14:00 - 16:00
Venue: Royal Academy of Arts, The Life Room
Burlington House

An afternoon of discussions and presentations by students, educators and the finalists of the Royal Academy Dorfman Award looking at the future of architectural education and practice.


How young architects wish to practice is changing significantly from the traditional office-based approach. With a younger generation of graduates finding ways to work in a more networked, multidisciplinary way, architecture schools are also having to adapt. What can be learned from different approaches across the globe?


In this free event, the finalists of the inaugural Royal Academy Dorfman Award – a prize that recognises talent representing the future of architecture – will present their thoughts on the changing nature of architectural practice and education.


They will be joined by students from architecture schools across the UK who will share their experiences and offer thoughts on the future.
