Young Architects and Developers Alliance YADA
It is intended to develop the relationship between the two disciplines and run a series of free networking events for under-35s, starting with a launch party on 24 November 2016.
YADA said, “YADA is quite simply about getting young architects and developers talking to each other, and crucially understanding each other better. We’ve all had those frustrating days at work when it’s almost as if you’re talking different languages. What often results is a project with a compromised design, delivered by a demotivated team. We think that through simple conversation, we can gain an insight into our opposite disciplines’ motivations and challenges, allowing us to work together to deliver better designed, commercially successful developments. Just think how many ideas start amongst friends in the pub?!”
The memebers of the YADA board are:
- Albena Atanassova from Scott Brownrigg.
- Alison Collins from Grosvenor.
- Belawal Hussain from WATG.
- Gareth Price from Lyndon Goode Architects.
- Grace Marien Osborn from Berkeley.
- Jen Ponting from Argent.
- Rebecca Garland from U+I.
- Vinesh Pomal from Levitt Bernstein.
