Ritblat leads architectural honours

  • Comment
The Queen has honoured a smattering of built-environment and architecture experts in the New Year honours list.

Heading the roll call of notable figures is British Land supremo John Ritblat, who picks up a knighthood.

The list also includes Marcus Binney, president of SAVE Britain's Heritage, who is awarded a CBE for his services to the conservation of the built environment.

The same accolade went to John Miller, the architect behind recent work at Tate Britain and the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, as well as the link between the Royal Scottish Academy building and National Gallery of Scotland, in Edinburgh.

Jeffrey West, former policy director for the historic environment at English Heritage, and Peter White, former secretary of the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales, have also been awarded OBEs.

In addition Pankaj Patel of London-based Patel Taylor Architects was awarded an MBE.
