On the weekend of the 16/17th April 2016 chartered architects in every corner of Northern Ireland will be opening their offices to volunteer their time and expertise to help raise funds for cancer research.The Ask An Architect initiative will give members of the public the opportunity to get expert advice from a chartered architect on building projects of all shapes and sizes.
For an hour long consultation people will be asked to make a £40 charitable donation to the Jill Todd Trust which was set up to commemorate Jill whose life was taken by cancer. Jill was 23 and the daughter of local architect Barrie Todd.
The Trust will present all funds raised through Ask An Architect to the Cancer Research Centre, Belfast via its affiliated charity the Friends of the Cancer Centre.
The initiative is being organised by the Royal Society of Ulster Architects (RSUA), PLACE – The Architecture Centre and the Jill Todd Trust.
An online booking system is being set up which will allow you to select the architect and the particular time slot of that weekend that suits you best. The booking system will go live around six weeks ahead of the Ask An Architect weekend. To make sure you get first pick, follow the organisers on Twitter and Facebook.
More details will be made available nearer the time. Watch this space!
Any architects who want to register their interest in volunteering for the Ask An Architect initiative or any other organisations that would like to support the initiative should contact Ciarán Fox, Director of RSUA, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
