The RIBA Project

The RIBA Schools Programme aims to 'provide the next generations with experience, knowledge and understanding of architecture and the built environment around them, and the skills and confidence to become involved in debates surrounding it'.

'Buildings are far more than an archaeological record, but about people, context and the intangible aspects of heritage that make a place special.'  James Mackintosh, Architect

James Mackintosh, Architecture Ambassador

Over a period of several months, pupils in KS2 worked in partnership with James Mackintosh, an Architecture Ambassador, exploring the knowledge, understanding and skills needed to become an architect. Their journey of discovery is the subject of our documentaries, 'Architecture of Light', 'Oxford Through Time and 'The RIBA Project.' James is a conservation accredited architect on the AABC and RIBA registers. Prior to setting up James Mackintosh Architects, James worked for 10 years with leading conservation architects Purcell on a range of prestigious buildings including Croome Court, Stowe House, Weston Park, Kelmarsh Hall, and Oxford University.
