Architects in Residence
Architects in Residence is designed to support architects working with teachers on school-based projects in both primary, secondary schools and sixth form colleges.
The resource provides a step-by-step guide to setting up a school based architecture and built environment project. The project model is based on a practitioner partnership between an architect and a teacher and is recognised as CPD for both. It supports both individual projects between a single practitioner and school and larger programmes.
Architects in Residence has been developed and piloted in schools by Arts Inform in partnership with the RIBA Trust, with support from CABE.
