March 22 2022
Collective Architecture director Jude Barber; Graven director Janice Kirkpatrick and Neil Gillespie, chairman & design director of Reiach & Hall Architects, are among 80 figures drawn from the arts, business and public sectors to be named as Fellows by the Royal Society of Edinburgh (RSE).
As a founding member of the architectural practice Barber received a Fellowship for her contribution to inclusive design and placemaking, championing best practice principles as a RIAS Council member and through teaching and lecturing.
Gillepsie is an academician at the Royal Scottish Academy and is a visiting professor at Scott Sutherland School of Architecture and the University of Sheffield. In 2011 Gillespie was awarded an OBE for services to architecture in the Queen's Honours List.
Kirkpatrick co-founded design consultancy Graven in 1986 and is also a member of D&AD, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and a visiting Professor of The Glasgow School of Art, where she has also been a governor and vice-chair. Kirkpatrick has also participated in the University of Strathclyde's Inspire programme.
Barber commented: “I am honoured to have been elected as a Fellow of the RSE, joining the company of such remarkable people. I’m also delighted to see other architects, designers and changemakers being recognised including Dr Adele Patrick, Janice Kirkpatrick, Neil Gillespie and Daisy Narayanan.
"I look forward to working with the Society and Fellows across a range of sectors, to further establish Scotland as a global centre for ideas, action and excellence.’
The RSE has sought to develop a more diverse Fellowship to help shape policy and research as well as engage society.
