The RIBA desperately needs a credible figurehead


The question is how the RIBA represents its members and evangelises for architecture. It has a membership that broadly falls into three groups: salaried architects, leaders of small practices and leaders of large practices. They all have different, and sometimes opposing, needs and the Institute's main aim should be finding ways of satisfying these wants. As it is the Institute does not offer that much, especially to architects from outside London and I don't see its membership getting engaged until it does.
