Vinesh Pomal running for RIBA Council
We are delighted to be supporting our very own Vinesh Pomal who is standing in the latest elections for a seat on the RIBA Council representing the London region.
Being the first child from a strict Gujarati background to attend university (let alone study Architecture) was a challenge for Vinesh; which drives his passion for making opportunity available to all to this day. He believes that this can only be achieved by addressing the many challenges and barriers that exist in this profession currently. From making our profession inclusive, improving procurement, promoting the value of architects through to championing the reform of architectural education, lobbying government and addressing climate change - these are just some of the issues Vinesh will be driving change for should he be elected onto Council.
Vinesh was the youngest Chartered member on Council when elected to represent the London Region in 2014. His past involvement with the RIBA has included being a committee member and co-chair of Architects for Change, board member of the British Architectural Trust Board and co-Presidential Ambassador for Young Architects. He teaches at Leicester School of Architecture, sits on the YADA board and is part of the Sutton Design Review Panel with a particular emphasis on championing high quality housing which he has gained during his time at Levitt Bernstein and currently at TateHindle. Vinesh has also recently been shortlisted for the UK Construction Role Model initiative.
Vinesh is a passionate, conscientious and driven individual who will listen to your views whilst persevering with RIBA to drive change and increase transparency for the common good.
Voting opens from 14th July until 5th August – Vote for Vinesh!
