To what extent is the subject of Architecture and the Built Environment explored in schools? How can this be improved or expanded, to further the links between architecture and the current curriculum in both architectural and teaching practice?

While engaging with our immediate built environment every day of our lives, we do not necessarily feel empowered or have the confidence to influence or affect positive change to our surrounding architecture, streets and public spaces. We believe a closer engagement with these fabulously interesting issues will mean our future cities, towns, villages and green spaces will benefit in terms of practical usefulness and design quality. By improving the level of discussion for school children, we are encouraging more knowledgeable construction and planning professionals, future clients and local community members and neighbours.
