LONDON.- Angela Brady has been elected the next President of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), the UK body for architecture and the architectural profession. Angela will become President Elect on 1 September 2010 and will take over the two-year elected presidency from Ruth Reed on 1 September 2011.

Angela will be the 74th RIBA President, a position previously held by Sir G. Gilbert Scott and Sir Basil Spence among others; she will be the second woman President.

Angela Brady is director of Brady Mallalieu Architects, and is currently serving as a CABE enabler, Vice-Chair of Civic Trust Awards, advisor to the British Council, visiting critic for London Metropolitan University, external examiner for the Mackintosh School of Architecture, Ambassador for the Government Equality Office and a STEMnet Ambassador. She is also Chair of the Royal Institute of Architects in Ireland (RIAI) London Forum and a member of RIAI Council and the RIBA’ Women in Architecture committee.

Speaking today, Angela Brady said: "I am absolutely delighted and honoured to have been elected as the next President of the RIBA and look forward to working with Ruth Reed. There is a lot of hard work ahead in these difficult times for the profession and the construction industry as a whole, but I have complete confidence in our ability to meet the challenge.

“As RIBA President, my priorities will be to ensure the RIBA remains as relevant to its members as possible and to encourage all members to act as advocates for the benefits good design can bring to buildings, communities and the environment. There is a real challenge for us to position architecture and architects as offering real value for money to society - well designed buildings improve people’ health, wealth and happiness and that is the message I will be championing during my term in office. I will continue to stress the importance of sustainability in design as well as press for more diversity in the profession. I also aim to increase national and international links within the construction industry, so that we can work collectively to combat some of the environmental and economic problems we all face.”
