June Meeting – 6 June 2017

If you do want to get involved ‘behind the scenes’ of the WSCA, help and ideas are always welcome.

We meet for a drink and a chat, normally once a month, but do get in touch for more information.

Following on from the successful Biophilic design lecture at the Hive and the launch of the Worcestershire Architecture Awards, we will be finalising arrangements for the awards and exhibition as well as planning for events later in the year.

Our next meeting is Tuesday 6th June at 7.30 at Bolero Bar and Kitchen in Worcester.

April Meeting – Finalising Design Awards

Our next get together will be on Tuesday 4th April at 7.30pm at Bolero Bar & Kitchen. At that meeting we are going to review the ‘briefing’ document for the competition, and we are looking to send a draft out in advance for comment – if you would like to attend please email mail@ribaworcestershire.co.uk.

It’d also be good to make some progress on our ‘logo’ so we can put this on the brief. Please could you bring any ideas you have along, then we can review these and hopefully choose one.

We have made contact with the Guildhall as a potential exhibition venue and will report on this. We will also decide who we are going to invite to do judging.

We can also have a general discussion if there is anything else anyone wants to raise. There are a couple of visits in the pipeline that the Chair will table.

March Meeting – Planning the Worcestershire Architecture Awards

RIBA Worcestershire Society of Chartered Architects are meeting again on Tuesday 7th March at 7.30pm at Bolero Bar & Kitchen on Foregate Street in Worcester.

The main focus of the WSCA this year is to run a local awards programme.

The Manchester Society of Architects already runs a successful awards scheme (http://www.the-msa.co.uk/ma-awards/).

The Worcestershire Awards will help us to raise the profile of architects and architecture locally. We’re really excited about this initiative and this next meeting is to pull together the categories, eligibility criteria and programme etc.  Come along with some thoughts to help us get this off the ground this year.

If you can’t come along to the meeting, watch out for the awards scheme going live this spring!

Don’t forget, if you know someone who is interested in becoming a member of the RIBA at any level and hasn’t yet got around to it, if you ‘refer’ them for membership (https://www.architecture.com/RIBA/JoinTheRIBA/Membership.aspx) and they join, you will receive a £25 bookshop voucher! The more people we get involved, the better.
