/ Our Motivation

Project Office's dual activities are education and enterprise. Our key motivations demonstrate both our ethical principles and how to occupy a space concurrently within the academic institution and architecture practice. We have 12 Rules of Agency:

· To be ethical
· To be environmentally resilient and informed
· To advocate participatory design methodologies for staff, students and collaborators
· To working only with clients who lack financial means to realise their projects
· To generate research impact through practice related research output
· To create opportunities for student engagement with a range of educational and formative experiences
· To comply with established ARB and RIBA validation criteria and EU directives for architectural education
· To develop architectural pedagogies
· To cause the production of architectural live projects as defined by Anderson and Priest (2016)
· To express the contribution of students as a force for good.
· To have fun
· To cultivate a space for an inclusive and virtuous practice that is inspiring for all participants
