RIBA Honorary Fellowships
The RIBA Council has approved 14 new RIBA Honorary Fellowships to reward individuals from a wide range of backgrounds, including politics, journalism, architecture, engineering and the arts.
RIBA Honorary Fellowships are awarded annually to people who have made a particular contribution to architecture – in the broadest sense. This includes its promotion, administration and outreach; and its role in building more sustainable communities and in the education of future generations.
RIBA President Angela Brady said:
'Each of this year's Honorary Fellows has made an enormous contribution to architecture, whether as a practitioner, designer, curator, writer or policy maker. The RIBA values everything that they have brought – in their very different ways – to the knowledge, understanding and appreciation of the world of architecture. I look forward to presenting them with their Honorary Fellowships in February.'
