The UK is a global architecture centre. Architecture directly contributes £4.8 billion to the UK economy every year, with a further £1 billion a year embedded in the exports of the other industries it supports – from banking to museums, transport to IT services.
In 2019, the architecture sector exported £625 million of creativity, innovation and expertise across the world.
The value of RIBA Chartered Practices' international work increased by 22% in the last year.
