Lectures for Architects

RIBA is proud to support this unique approach to conservation skills and the CPD Core Curriculum. These lectures will be equally ideal for experienced conservation architects and for those who just want to learn more about the subject from various angles.

New for 2013 is a programme of Continuing Professional Development lectures for conservation architects and architects who aspire to specialise. Starting in June, experts in their field will each deliver a lecture corresponding to the subjects within the new RIBA Core Curriculum, with a specific emphasis relating to conservation. This programme enables you to top-up your conservation knowledge and get the required core curriculum topics in a stunning setting.

Each lecture will cost £65 for RIBA/CIAT members, £85 for non-members and £15 for students (on production of a valid NUS card).
Lunches can be booked at a cost of £10.

Accommodation (including evening meal and breakfast) can be booked from £57 no earlier than two weeks prior to your lecture (subject to availability).
Call Bookings on +44 (0) 1243 811301.
