As part of RICS’ year of celebrations to mark its 150th anniversary, we’re taking the opportunity to both look back at the rich history of our profession, and to look forward to the future of the built environment, with this special edition of Modus magazine.
We’ve uncovered some great stories of surveyors and their achievements. We’ve spoken to a wide range of experts from across the world for their views on which cities worldwide are making the best progress – and what challenges lie ahead. And there is a special focus on risk, with a report on Asia’s shifting investment trends, and an interview with past RICS president Martin Brühl, chair of the Institution’s Real Estate Investment Risk Forum.
This special edition also marks a completely new look – and a slightly new name – for Modus, and the introduction of some new editorial elements, which will be continued and developed with the next edition, due to be published in November.
We hope you enjoy the first issue of this relaunched Modus Asia Pacific magazine.
