Built environment

We believe that architecture as a profession and the built environment that surrounds us should be designed by the people who live in it, celebrating and giving voice to the rich and diverse cultural heritage of people from every background.

But this can only be achieved when young people from diverse backgrounds are inspired to become architects, when they are supported on the long journey to qualify, and when communities are truly involved in shaping the environment around them.
