Meet the Architecture Foundation's Young Trustees

AF appoints a team of young practitioners to a newly-created board

The Architecture Foundation has created a new team of young trustees – a board of six architectural designers and writers engaged in bringing forward new projects, expanding the reach of the foundation and developing its network of volunteers.

The young trustees, who do not have the statutory responsibilities of the AF's existing board, work with the core staff team on a variety of established and new initiatives and play an increacingly crucial role in the foundation's programme. They can be emailed using the address
