The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has announced the 2020 RIBA Honorary Fellowships, which are awarded to individuals from diverse backgrounds including property, infrastructure, arts and architectural design.

The institute’s fellowships are awarded annually to people who are not architects, but have made a significant contribution to architecture – including individuals who have advanced the industry’s role in creating more sustainable communities, those involved in its promotion and management, and those who nurture the architectural interests of future generations.

The 2020 RIBA Honorary Fellowships have been awarded to Pam Alexander OBE, chair of Commonplace Digital Ltd, ambassador on the London Mayor’s Cultural Leadership Group and board member of the London Legacy Development Corporation and Connected Places Catapult; Professor Yolande Barnes, professor of Real Estate and chair at the Bartlett Real Estate Institute at UCL; Jude Kelly CBE who, in 2018, established the WOW Foundation – an independent charity dedicated to building the ‘Women of the World’ movement as a force for positive change; Sadie Morgan, founding director of RIBA Stirling Prizewinning architecture practice dRMM; and Morag Myerscough, founder of Studio Myerscough and collective Supergrouplondon.

The lifetime honour allows recipients to use the initials Hon FRIBA after their name.
