Brian Godfrey threatens new tilt at RIBA presidency

  • Comment
Veteran small practice campaigner Brian Godfrey has said he is considering standing for a third time for the RIBA presidency.

In a move that could threaten other candidates such as Sunand Prasad, the Devon-based architect has refused to rule out another bid.

If he were to throw his hat in the ring, the small practitioner would certainly garner support from the regions.

Politically, he could be described as a protectionist. In his previous bids for the presidency, Godfrey advocated a raft of radical proposals to transform both the institute and the way that its members work.

He has openly discussed the idea of a geographical limitation on the reach of practices and the reinstatement of a strict fee scale for all RIBA members.

Speaking before one of his previous campaigns, Godfrey summed up his philosophy: 'The big practices get bigger, the medium firms get big and the small practices get squeezed'.
