RIBA and Landscape Institute to look at forming dual-membership scheme

The Landscape Institute is looking at forming a dual-membership initiative with the Royal Institute of British Architects. The two groups met recently before the Royal Institute of British Architects said it was keen to encourage landscape architects to join RIBA, which wanted to tap into their urban open-space expertise. Paul Newman, RIBA’s director of membership, told Landscape Review, it would follow on from an affiliate scheme the two institutes signed up to earlier this year and bring the two disciplines closer together on issues of urban design. “We have looked at out membership base and aim to encourage co-professionals such as landscape architects and architectural technicians to be members of RIBA and vice versa.” RIBA President George Ferguson said as a society we had failed to deliver good-enough towns and cities.
