Institute picks its latest honorary fellows
Lord Jacob Rothschild, trustee chairman of the National Gallery, and Financial Times architectural critic Colin Amery are two of the latest nominations for RIBA honorary fellowships.
The line-up, expected to be confirmed at RIBA council this week, also includes John Worthington, a founder and deputy chairman of DEGW, and Professor Wu Liang Yong, a 77-year-old Chinese architect who studied under Eliel Saarinen. Writer Jan Morris, artist Deanna Petherbridge, estate agent David Rosen - who acquired for the Saatchis their new Harper Mackay-designed headquarters in Golden Square - and 'forthright' journalist, historian and lecturer Dr Gavin Stamp have also been nominated.
Hungarian architect Imre Makovecz, 63, and Professor Jacques Heyman, head of the engineering department at Cambridge University, round off the RIBA's list for 1998.
