RIBA set to put trust in Knevitt

The RIBA is on the verge of appointing author and fundraiser Charles Knevitt as the director of the RIBA Trust, the AJ has learned.

The author of many books - including the famous Community Architecture - is in contractual negotiations with the institute.

If successful, Knevitt will oversee the new charitable trust, which, as one of three companies within the RIBA group, aims to promote architecture to the public at large. The appointment will end the one-year tenure of Roula Konzotis, who stood in when the original search proved fruitless.

Knevitt has long been associated with architecture and was involved in Prince Charles' efforts to set up an alternative Classical architectural education system.
