Architects' Journal

The Architects’ Journal is the voice of architecture in Britain. We sit at the heart of the debate about British architecture and British cities, and form opinions across the whole construction industry on design-related matters.


Institution Supporters

AECB logo

The AECB is a network of individuals and companies with a common aim of promoting sustainable building. It brings together builders, architects, designers, manufacturers, housing associations and local authorities, to develop, share and promote best practice in environmentally sustainable building. We pride ourselves on our independence, relevance and practicality.
The AECB is run by its members and is a not for profit organisation which relies on membership subscriptions to fund its core work. Our financial independence means that we can be an entirely independent voice when lobbying Government and trying to influence the agenda for sustainable construction in the UK.

British Council logo The British Council creates international opportunities for the people of the UK and other countries and builds trust between them worldwide. We call this work cultural relations.
British Council for Offices The British Council for Offices’ (BCO) mission is to research, develop and communicate best practice in all aspects of the office sector. It delivers this by providing a forum for the discussion and debate of relevant issues. Sustainability interests are represented in the BCO by our Environmental Sustainability Group.
Institution of Civil Engineers The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) was founded in 1818 to ensure professionalism in civil engineering. It represents 80,000 qualified and student civil engineers in the UK and across the globe. The ICE has long worked with the government of the day to help it to achieve its objectives, and has worked with industry to ensure that construction and civil engineering remain major contributors to the UK economy and UK exports.
Landscape Institute
The Landscape Institute is the professional body for landscape architects. It is an educational charity and chartered body responsible for protecting, conserving and enhancing the natural and built environment for the benefit of the public. It champions well-designed and well-managed urban and rural landscape. The Institute’s accreditation and professional procedures ensure that the designers, managers and scientists who make up the landscape architecture profession work to the highest standards. Its advocacy and education programmes promote the landscape architecture profession as one which focuses on design, environment and community in order to inspire great places where people want to live, work and visit. The Institute provides services to assist members including support and promotion of the work of landscape architects; information and guidance to the public and industry about the specific expertise offered by those in the profession; and training and educational advice to students and professionals looking to build upon their experience.
LessEn is a global initiative to demonstrate and engage individuals and organisations in lessening energy in non-domestic buildings. LessEn is based around networks, tools, campaigns and a website (knowledge bank, case studies, blog and the world’s first global energy map), to share best practice in building energy efficiency.
Urban Land Institute
ULI – the Urban Land Institute – is a non-profit research and education organisation supported by its members. Founded in Chicago in 1936, the institute now has over 30,000 members in 95 countries worldwide, representing the entire spectrum of land use and real estate development disciplines and working in private enterprise and public service.
The Passivhaus Trust

The Passivhaus Trust is an independent, non-profit organisation that provides leadership in the UK for the adoption of the Passivhaus standard and methodology. It aims is to promote the principles of Passivhaus as a highly effective way of reducing energy use and carbon emissions from buildings in the UK, as well as providing high standards of comfort and building health. Passivhaus is the leading and proven international low energy, design standard. Over 37,000 units of houses, schools, offices and other buildings have been designed, built and tested to this standard across the world:

UK Green Building Council
The UK Green Building Council (UK-GBC) is a membership organisation that is campaigning for a sustainable built environment – one that minimises negative environmental impacts while maximising benefits for people everywhere. That means we are concerned with homes and non-domestic buildings, both new and existing, and the infrastructure that binds them together. Launched in 2007 to offer clarity, cohesion and leadership to a disparate sector, we bring together anyone involved in the complex process of planning, designing, constructing, maintaining and operating buildings. A registered charity, we work with our members – who are mostly businesses, but also NGOs, government agencies and academic institutions – to deliver radical change
