Tim talks at the Swedish Institute of Architecture

Director Tim Riley was recently invited to be a guest speaker at the Swedish Institute of Architecture to talk about socially responsive architecture.

Established to promote just that, RCKa has a wealth of projects which demonstrate this as a result of placing an emphasis on the end user’s experience – buildings should serve people, not vice versa.

Projects featured in the talk range from RCKa’s Open Eye Gallery, TNG Youth and Community Centre and PegasusLife Hortsley.

“At the Swedish Institute of Architecture I had the pleasure of presenting our approach and demonstrating how architecture can contribute to social wealth. Interesting debate ensued as to the role of architects and how the profession needs to engage more with the psychological effects of our designs to better address human needs.”
