Architects receive recognition in New Year’s Honours list

  • Comment

Architects including Graham Morrison, Bob Allies, Joanna van Heyningen, and Pat Borer have been recognised in the 2016 New Year’s Honours list

OBEs went to Allies and Morrison co-founders Bob Allies and Graham Morrison for services to architecture. The pair employ around 130 architects at their London-based firm which this year celebrated its thirtieth anniversary.

Joanna van Heyningen, co-founder of van Heyningen and Haward Architects, was also recognised with an OBE for her services to architecture and the built environment.

Royal academician and former professor of architecture at the University of Manchester Trevor Dannatt picked up an honour for his contribution to architectural education, while Pat Borer, who designed the Centre for Alternative Technology’s RIBA Award-winning WISE building alongside David Lea, was recognised with an MBE for his services to architecture.

In addition Nigel Woolner, 75, former senior partner at Chapman Taylor and now consultant to the practice, was handed an MBE for services to the arts and education.

Following his retirement from the international firm in 2007, Woolner served at Latymer School as a governor masterminding the Hammersmith institution’s 15-year redevelopment programme.
