Much has been written about the elevation of Lord Foster, but some of the information concerning architect peers is a little lacking. One report suggests only four have been so elevated: Richard Llewelyn-Davies, William Holford, and of course Norman and the other Richard. But what about Alfred Bossom, one of the few British architects to have succeeded in the us, friend of Churchill, made a baronet and then becoming one of the first life peers created by Harold Wilson. There are, of course, plenty of examples of hereditary peers who are or were architects, from Lord Burlington onwards. Current examples include Lord Esher, the Duke of Gloucester, Lord Cunliffe and Lord Hankey (known to friends as 'Tissue').
