Research Practice Leads Group

'A step change in the perception of architecture to leverage our skills to deliver better performance.'

The Research Practice Leads Group discusses Coastal Nourishment

The aim of the Research Practice Leads (RPL) group is to lobby for architectural research in practice and to share skills and knowledge. The RPL group was set up in May 2016 as part of the AHRC funded project Evidencing and Communicating the Value of Architects, led by Flora Samuel, and was developed with Darryl Chen of Hawkins Brown. It meets every two months in the offices of one of the participating practices.

These include:
