‘There's no reason why Business and Art can't go hand in hand' – Norman Foster

This week I am speaking with Chris Williamson, co-founder of Weston Williamson, a 100 person strong practice based in central London specialising in large scale transport infrastructure.

In addition to being a chartered architect, Chris has an MSc in Project Management and believes strongly that the art of architecture requires excellent business skills in order to be realised. Previously Chris was the RIBA's Business Skills ambassador. Chris is currently the International Vice President of the RIBA responsible for setting a strategy to grow into a global membership institution and to encourage more UK architects to seek work globally.
