Event description

Description

NEW WAYS OF WORKING

The RIBA’s annual national conference for practitioners, Smart Practice has a forward-looking, strategic focus. It is designed to appeal to architects working in practices of different scales across sectors.

The intention is to provide a highly informative and insightful day out of the office. The conference aspires to give practitioners the head space, the fuel and the ideas for moving things on and continual improvement – at the project and the practice level.

This year the theme is New Ways of Working and will explore how digital design and fabrication, new procurement models and a culture of collaboration impact on architectural practice, enable better project outcomes - in terms of quality, efficiency and social value - and create business opportunities.
