RIBA Honorary Fellowships are awarded annually to people who are not architects but have made a significant contribution to architecture. This includes individuals who have advanced its role in creating more sustainable communities, those involved in its promotion and management, and those who nurture the interests of future generations.
Those honoured have contributed greatly towards architecture, be they practitioners, commentators or educators. In their different ways, they have helped to improve the quality of design and influence the delivery of the built environment in a sustainable and creative way.
“Architecture is a reflection of all it's been exposed to, and there are many art forms / disciplines that are in direct or indirect servitude to its evolution. Acknowledgement of this, will only bring further brilliance to collaboration and innovation in the field.” Rhael ‘LionHeart’ Cape, Poet and RIBA Honorary Fellow 2021.
