David nominated for RIBA President’s Dissertation Medal



Our long-time assistant, David’s dissertation ‘Peripatetic Manifesto, a tale of serious playfulness’ has been nominated for the prestigious RIBA President’s Medal. Congratulations!

The RIBA published the nominees for the 2020 dissertation medals, including David’s piece 🡢, influenced by his work and discussions with MillsPower. David was asked to write a 3000 word exploration of the profession as part of his Masters course at the London School of Architecture. He was challenged to write an academic essay and to define his ambitions and his voice in architecture.

In the Peripatetic Manifesto David tackled big questions in architecture today including the architect’s agency in enabling communities and tackling climate change, while he argues for embracing his own and the world’s ambiguous nature as a means of approaching some answers. He chose to write in the form of a script, resulting in a serious, yet playful conversation between himself and time travelling Greek philosophers, referring not only architectural theory, but other cultural influences that shape his views.

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
