MoU with RIBA set to accelerate best practice in KSA

Association with 150-year pedigree will work closely with the Saudi Architecture and Design Commission on skills transfer initiative

The Saudi Architecture and Design Commission has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) as part of its endeavour to enhance its raft of global strategic partnerships.

Part of the organisation’s remit is to help attract the best international practices and experiences into the kingdom – and RIBA has a 150-year history of supporting and benchmarking many of the world’s finest architectural developments and portfolios.

The signing ceremony was held at the institute’s headquarters in London, where the commission was represented by its CEO, Dr. Sumayah Al Solaiman, and the institute by CEO, Dr. Valerie Vaughan-Dick.

Dr. Sumayah explained the importance of this new partnership in contributing to the commission’s strategic plans: “It will”, she said, “contribute to the transfer of the best practices in the architecture and design industries as we work as strategic partners in the sector, to achieve the aspirations of the architecture and design community in the Kingdom.”
