How to Start a Practice
Recent webinar on with Simon Foxell
As the UK considers how to emerge from the CV19 lockdown, many furloughed architects and others are thinking about setting up their own practices and building an independent route to economic recovery.
Simon Foxell, author of the RIBA’s bestselling Starting a Practice: A Plan of Work, discussed how to go about this and how to prepare for a future working for yourself.

Past Events and Workshops
MoA's The Gingerbread City ®
is an annual pop-up public exhibition showcasing an entire city made of gingerbread. Its aim is to connect the public with architecture in an exciting way, and spark important conversations around cities and how we live in them.

"The popularity of Gingerbread City has enabled us to set up a grant-giving fund this year. This new fund will allow MoA to support new projects which help people to create betters places and communities, and enable the public to better engage with architecture.”
