The RIBA has announced nine new RIBA Honorary Fellowships to reward individuals from a diverse spectrum of backgrounds, including the worlds of business, local government, media, education and the arts.
RIBA Honorary Fellowships are awarded annually to people who have made a particular contribution to architecture in its broadest sense. This includes its promotion, administration and outreach; and its role in building more sustainable communities and in the education of future generations.
On the occasion of the Royal Gold Medal Lecture given by Joseph Rykwert on 24 February the RIBA also presented its Honorary and International Fellowships.
