making the case for #greatschools – AJ Round table

UPB founding director Alex Warnock-Smith was invited by the Architects Journal to take part in a round table discussion. The debate focused on issues such as the role of architects within the procurement of  school buildings and the need for architects to campaign more visibly on the positive role the industry can play to help deliver more cost effective and better designed school buildings.
