Making a mark
The stereotypical architect has a reputation for dictating the vision for the project, often disregarding the opinions of others. It's not like that at Raise, we work as a team. 

At a recent catch-up meeting, we asked everyone what 'one thing' they would bring to a project if they were given the opportunity to leave their mark. Here's what we said.


The truth behind the adventure

In his latest video, Alastair Humphreys reveals the truth behind what it takes to sell the adventure lifestyle.

Still, sitting here, in the office, it's hard to feel too sorry for him!
Diary of a young architect
It's a big step from the world of education to the world of work. Jennifer, one of our architects-in-waiting joined us straight from university last October.

She's keeping a diary of her transition from student to architect, and has shared some excerpts with us. 

A letter to anyone who has been rejected
Rejection is tough. It can destroy your confidence and when it happens, it can be hard to keep going and think rationally.

But the world needs your unique contribution, and if it ever happens to you, this letter might help. 

RIBA regional awards
Every year the Royal Institute of British Architects celebrates design excellence through it's regional awards.

Although it tends to be dominated by flashy, multi-million pound projects, this year a couple of smaller scale, more sensitive projects caught our eye. 
Home exchange
Do you have a nice house? Would you like to stay in someone else's nice house?

Behomm is a home exchange community for creatives and design lovers, enabling you to stay in beautiful houses all over the world. 
Models of photos
Two Swiss photographers have recreated some of history's most iconic photos with incredibly intricate models.

We love a good model, but these guys have taken it to an extreme level.

The future of Civil Society
How can we take control of the places and spaces that matter to us?

Civil Society Futures is the independent enquiry looking to put power back in to the hands of citizens.
