Article 25 join RIBA for new Knowledge Community

Built environment charity Article 25 is joining forces with the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) to develop a new way for professionals from the built environment and the world of international development to engage with each other. At the end of March, the new ‘RIBA Knowledge Community for Development and Disaster Relief’ will be launched as a networking tool through both an online environment and a series of face-to-face events.

With recent events demonstrating the devastating effects of poor construction methods in the face of natural disasters, RIBA has taken this opportune time to launch its new initiative in a bid to reduce and effectively prevent such extreme results in the future. The website currently holds a membership of over 1000 professionals and ten separate communities, The Knowledge Communities are organised as collections of architects and other professionals who are committed to collaborations within specialist areas of design, management and construction.

The current Knowledge Communities cover a diverse range of subjects from Traditional Architecture to Sustainability, and are set to include Development and Disaster Relief. Alongside its broad problem-solving appeal, the Development and Disaster Relief community intends to increase institutional learning so that members can learn from one another’s mistakes.
