Common Ground Workshop have joined the ARB and LSA to discuss proposed reforms to the standards required for architects to be registered

Having recognize the need for the architectural profession to achieve far greater access and representation, the Architects Registration Board (ARB) and London School of Architecture held open debate last night on the future of professional practice, with a view to overhauling and diversifying entry to the profession, including removing the need to undertake the traditional Part 1.

As Practice Partners with the London School of Architecture, directors Jack Pannell and Mark Sciberras attended the event where the ARB will set out the evidence base for these proposals (including their extensive engagement and research process with the sector), asking for key insights and feedback from students and industry professionals.

A big thanks to John Nahar of the LSA – This was a really great opportunity to be involved in the continuing debate around new routes to accessing the profession and to cover some of the key ideas that are shaping the innovative new approach being proposed by the ARB, ahead of the 2027 deadline.
