News: 15 June 2017Barton Willmore designer nominated for RIBA Council

Senior Urban Designer and Chartered Architect, Stephanie Edwards, has been nominated in the RIBA’s Council Elections, to represent London in the Institute’s council. The council is made up of a 60-strong team of the RIBA’s members, who are responsible for the organisation’s conduct and development.

Receiving seven nominations to stand in the elections, Stephanie, if successful, would become one of eight regionally elected London Councillors; a position that will run for a three-year term. Stephanie, who works in our London team on projects in the UK and internationally, said:

“I’m delighted to have been given the chance to have an important role in such a well-respected institution, and it’s an honour to be alongside some great architects. What I really appreciate about Architecture are the abundant opportunities that it provides, not only for those in the profession, but for the diverse society that it serves.

"In alliance with the RIBA’s mission statement, I believe that we need to deepen our understanding of our communities and if I’m elected I’ll push to promote engagement and innovation that responds to current, future, and projected needs by using the advanced data and factual insight that is being generated on a daily basis.

“If elected to RIBA council, I hope to continue seeing the industry integrated with all sectors of society. By helping to make architecture truly accessible to all those that can benefit from it, we will be able to explore new avenues of innovation, forge new relationships and ultimately increase our influence at a local and international level.”

Voting for the council opened on 15th June, and will close on 26th July. Members can vote through the RIBA’s website here.
