Richard currently teaches part 3 lectures on this topic and did further research into the topic for his book of the same name. The book is about to be published as a RIBA Good Practice Guide in January '22. Writing it was Richard's lock-down therapy project.
There is a unique history of the development of professionalism and regulation of architects, particularly in the UK, from the pyramids to medieval guilds to RIBA, ARB, WCCA and the ACE (EU). This lecture also explores the current and likely future professional demands on architects and how we can continue to practice ethically and sustain our professionalism.
Richard has dedicated his book to our recently deceased liveryman and PPRIBA Owen Luder, who wrote a perhaps more controversially titled book 'Keeping Out of Trouble'. This lecture is also Richard's memorial to Owen.
This online talk, free to WCCA members, will count towards the annual CPD hours under the RIBA "Architecture for Social Purpose" topic.
