RIBA presidency hopefuls reveal manifestos

  • Comment

The two candidates for the RIBA presidency, Andrew Hanson and Ruth Reed, have unveiled their election manifestos.

The duo are currently the only remaining contenders still battling it out to replace current figurehead Sunand Prasad following Paul Davis’ decision to drop out last week.

Hanson, currently chair of RIBA London, has proposed a number of commercial benefits for institute members, such as discounts at the RIBA bookshop and reduced rates for museum, exhibition and gallery entry. ‘The RIBA membership card would, at last, have a use,’ he said.

Other plans include setting up an annual 60 over 60 exhibition, a new ‘group practice’ which would allow smaller practices to work together to carry out larger projects, and a national business networking club. Hanson also wants to change the focus of the RIBA Trust from London to the regions.
