“It is vital that architects engage closely in the challenge of Rethinking Construction to promote the core values widely shared by architects and non-architects. This will not be achieved by the RIBA simply producing a policy document in response to Rethinking Construction… Far better to get all architects re-thinking for themselves in all their myriad circumstances and methods of practice how to improve the quality of design and, crucially, the delivery of the built environment for the benefit of the users — our customers”.
