An Ipswich architect has been re-elected as chairman of the Suffolk branch of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) as the University of Suffolk launches its first architecture degree course.
Bryan Wybrow, project architect at KLH Architects at Sproughton, was voted in at the RIBA Suffolk annual general meeting for a second year.
Bryan said: “I am thrilled to have been re-elected as chair for RIBA Suffolk, and 2018 is going to be an exciting year for the branch.
“To coincide with the launch of the eagerly anticipated architecture degree course at University of Suffolk, we have a variety of activities planned to help promote architecture in the local area.”
Last year, RIBA Suffolk established a new architectural student award and this year, the branch launched a nationwide competition challenging architecture students to come up with a winning design for Ipswich’s ‘Winerack’ building.
“We are keen to raise the profile of the profession to the wider construction industry while generating some interest and enthusiasm for architecture in Suffolk,” said Bryan.
RIBA Suffolk is the Suffolk branch of the Royal Institute of British Architects and works for its members as a cultural association promoting a deeper understanding and appreciation of architecture through lectures, tours, and seminars.
