Stephen Hodder MBE to be President of the RIBA

Director of Hodder + Partners, Stephen Hodder MBE, has been announced as the next President of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and will become President Elect on 1 September 2012 with his two-year elected presidency commencing on 1 September 2013. Already RIBA Vice-President for Nations and Regions, and a member of the Design Review Panel at CABE and Places Matter, Hodder has led his architecture firm to become one of the most renowned practices in the UK, winning the RIBA Stirling Prize in 1996 for the Centenary Building at the University of Salford.

Speaking on today’s announcement, Hodder explained: “As RIBA President, I will bring continuity to the great work already being delivered, from procurement reform to campaigning and cultural programming. I am particularly keen that we do more to promote the importance of collaboration between client, design and delivery teams - an essential partnership that can lead to more successful architecture. Even faced with challenging times, we can achieve so much.”
