The RCA shouldn’t put its achievements in interiors at risk

I am writing in response to last week’s Voxpop, ‘Following the recent reports of concern over the status of interiors on the Royal College of Art’s MA Architecture course, do you think that the RCA is losing sight of the importance of interior design?’ (DW 8 March).

To declare my interest, I am a contented long-term employer of RCA Interior Design graduates and admirer of the extraordinary legacy of work produced by alumni.

The fact that RCA Architecture does not acknowledge this rarefied and distinctive discipline is naive and will only serve to disenfranchise and undermine the high quality interior design undergraduate courses that are attempting to maintain their hard-won reputations.
