Ian Davidson, founder and director of Lifschutz Davidson, has died suddenly at the age of 48.

Davidson - who suffered a heart attack on Thursday - was vicechair of the Architects Registration Board and, until October last year, chair of the RIBA Awards group. Among the schemes for which he will be best remembered are the awardwinning redevelopment of the Oxo Tower Wharf and the recently opened Hungerford pedestrian footbridges.RIBA president Paul Hyett said he will be sorely missed by the profession, describing him as the 'consummate complete architect'. And the ARB's chief executive, Robin Vaughan, said Davidson's work for the board would help 'secure the quality of architecture in the future'. (See obituary, page 10 )
