Thursday 20 February: West London Architects + IStructE Present "Alternative Networking": Eco Challenges Night
We've had a lot of requests for chances to meet other CI professions (not just architects). But traditional "networking" events can be intimidating, boring....hard work!
Do you wish there was another way to meet new people - especially from other professions?
RIBA West London Architects have joined with London IStructE to host a Games Night to help architects and engineers make new connections. It's networking for people who hate "networking"!
Let's break the ice with a series of fun, interactive quick-fire challenges over drinks and food.
You'll be randomly assigned in a team of five and then challenged to come up with solutions to sustainability problems, in a series of 10-minute rounds.
And after that, it's time to chill, eat, drink and chat with what we hope will be your new engineer BFFs.
The team with the most points will get a £250 Michelin-star restaurant voucher, to further their new relationships (and the team with the least will get a "wooden spoon" prize of £25 Greggs' vouchers - because it's all a bit of fun).

Storytelling and Patience: Architectural Photography with Jim Stephenson
An architectural photography seminar and networking at Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios.

The session was designed specifically for architects looking to improve their own photography.
