LONDON, ENGLAND.- The Royal Institute of British Architects(RIBA), Arts Council England and the Architecture Centre Network have announced that this year’s Architecture Week will take place from 15th – 24th June 2007, and are encouraging individuals and organisations to get involved.

Architecture Week is now in its 11th year and aims to celebrate the best in contemporary architecture and its impact on the environment through a diverse programme of national and regional events presented to the public. Everyone can be involved in architecture and the environment in which they live and work.

Architecture Week 2007 (AW07) will build on the success of the 2006 programme, which was the most successful year yet in terms of the number, quality and diversity of art and architecture-related events.

How to get involved? RIBA East is keen to hear from individuals and organisations who are interested in taking part in this year’s event – including private building owners, public centres, National Trust buildings, art galleries, museums and architectural practices. Events could include organising a tour of a sustainable building, presenting an exhibition, opening up a normally private environment to the wider public – anything that might be of interest and relevance for this year’s event.

The main theme for Architecture Week 2007 is 'How Green is Our Space?'

The theme for AW07 has been confirmed as “How Green is Our Space”, looking at all aspects of the environment from climate change, green roofs, recycled building materials and sustainable design through to physical green spaces within the built environment.

Buildings contribute around 50% of the UK's carbon emissions, with houses making up 25% of that, so there's a lot we can do to draw attention to our buildings and change our world. Architecture Week events across the country aim to make us all think about how 'green' our homes, offices and schools are, and how we can improve the spaces where we live and work to make them more sustainable.

Even if your event does not have a green theme, you can still be a part of Architecture Week, the main aim of which is to inspire people to think creatively about the spaces around them.

Why take part? Architecture Week offers the opportunity for people to learn more about architecture and understand their own role in improving the environment through architecture. This is an opportunity for people from every sector to join and celebrate the built environment. This high profile initiative attracts significant attention from the media and the public. Using local event guides and the Architecture Week website we can help give your initiative the attention it deserves too, helping you attract attention to your event. Last year, several hundred different organisations took part across the country.
