“In design, as one of the pre-eminent architects of his generation; in education, as an inspirational university professor; in the profession, as President of the Royal Institute of British Architects; as a Royal Academician; as a writer of many articles on architecture; and as an insightful adviser to many distinguished organisations.
“His name is known throughout the profession.”
