Honorary fellows also included two men closely associated with the Millennium Bridge. Tony Fitzpatrick came first. Now chairman of Arup Americas, his citation said that he will 'probably always be known as the man who took the wobble out of the wobbly bridge', but he was accompanied on stage by a rather wobbly looking picture of the bridge itself.
Far sharper was the next picture on stage, accompanying the next man. Again it was the Millennium Bridge, only this time it was for Chris Wise, formerly of Arup (where he was chief designer on 'the wobbler') now of Expedition Engineering, who worked with Foster on various projects including that bridge. His citation writer was Lord Rogers, with whom he has also worked on Channel 4, Terminal 5 at Heathrow, the law courts in Bordeaux and the National Assembly for Wales.
