Open letter signed by 400 architects warns of ‘devastating’ consequences of Brexit

Norman Foster and Richard Rogers have written to the prime minister warning that Brexit could be “devastating” for British architecture.

Along with 400 other leading names from the profession, they have signed an open letter arguing that Britain’s negotiations with the EU are ignoring the will of 48% of the people who voted to remain.

“We do not see within any of your negotiation with the EU any consideration whatsoever of the circumstances that we need for our industry and associated institutions to continue to thrive,” it says.
