RIBA Publication Featuring Director, Zoe Hooton

HPA Chartered Architects Contemporary Professionalism

A new book published by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) features contributions from HPA’s very own director, Zoe Hooton. 

‘Defining Contemporary Professionalism: For Architects in Practice and Education’, edited by Alan Jones and Rob Hyde, offers a series of curated essays by high-profile architecture and design leaders on the topic of professionalism.

The book focuses on delivering the increased professional curriculum content within architecture schools, as set by the RIBA. With an introduction by the editors, this work explores what contemporary professionalism within architecture is, and its future – encouraging the current and future profession to address professionalism across industries as a whole.

HPA director, Zoe Hooton, has written a chapter on the gap between education and architecture practice and the needs of students and mentors in the practice. Her personal experience is a result of HPA’s years of training students and participating the RIBA Mentoring scheme.

HPA has a close relationship with a number of architecture schools and is eagerly anticipating the opening of the new architecture school at Lancaster University. Zoe is also a professional studies advisor of the RIBA Part 3 course, which is the final qualification required by architects.

The publication was released in September 2019 and coincided with the start of Alan Jones’ presidency of the RIBA. The book can be ordered online directly, from the RIBA website.
