Angela Brady takes over as RIBA president

  • Comment

Angela Brady will officially take over from Ruth Reed as the president of the Royal Institute of British Architects tomorrow (1 September)

Dublin-born Brady has promised to consider ambitious reforms of the institute during her two-year presidency.

Brady will become the institute’s 74th president and will also be the second woman to hold the role. As well as working for her practice Brady Mallalieu, she is also an ambassador for the Government Equality Office and an advisor to the British Council.

Brady said: ‘During my term in office I intend to work to increase the understanding that the public and politicians have about the value that well designed buildings bring to peoples lives, and to help bring about the necessary political and education changes to enable the delivery of the best possible built environments.’

Her presidency coincides with the London 2012 Olympics when global attention is expected to fall on UK architectural design.

‘As former design champion for the London Development Agency BOARD and daughter of a past Olympic competitor (my Dad competed in 1968 and 1972), I will be honoured to be RIBA President at this time and proud that the UK is delivering fantastic sustainable regeneration that will benefit our country during the Games and for many years to come’, she added.
