 Jude Barber joins a growing list of RIBA president hopefuls
Collective Architecture director Jude Barber has become the latest candidate to stand for RIBA president, placing inclusivity, climate and collaboration at the heart of her manifesto.
Barber will go head-to-head with AHMM co-founder Simon Allford and Sumita Singha, founder of Ecologic and Architects for Change - the only other candidates to publicly declare in the race so far.
Rallying support Barber commented: "This current crisis has shone a big, bright light on all that is (and was) either good or bad in the process of making of architecture – and our need to better address these proactively with our clients and collaborators across design, delivery and education.”
“I want the RIBA to have a clear, strong voice that speaks in a way that best represents and includes the views of all our members – and future members – from every corner of the country and beyond."
Barber is a strong voice in promoting gender equality and is a founder member of A New Chapter, a grassroots body pushing greater transparency within the RIAS which is conducting its own leadership campaign.
