RIBA Yorkshire visit York on their Architecture Forum roadshow

In 2012, RIBA Yorkshire are bringing their Regional Council meetings to its members. Each quarterly meeting is to be held in different parts of the region, each followed by a building visit and Architecture Forum discussing relevant topics. The second was held last night in York. 

After our Regional Council meeting (download meeting minutes hereElizabeth Heaps, Pro-Vice Chancellor for Estates and Strategic Projects at University of York, Tony McGirk and Stephen Hill from BDP showed us round the buildings of the Heslington East Campus. Local Members were also invited to have an in depth back stage tour of the impressive department of Theatre, Film and Television.
