We are proud and delighted for our doyen, Philip Cox, who has been named as a RIBA international fellow.
Australian architect Philip Cox has been presented with an international fellowship from the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA).
RIBA has named 12 international fellowships, which are awarded to non-UK architects, for 2017. The lifetime honour rewards the particular contributions non-UK architects have made to architecture.
Cox was presented with his international fellowship at a presentation at RIBA in London on 30 January. The ceremony is part of Royal Gold Medal Week, honouring 2017 Royal Gold Medal recipient, Brazilian architect Paulo Mendes da Rocha.
Cox was decribed by the jury as “the doyen of Australian architecture.”
The citation noted: “His career has spanned the range of late-twentieth-century architecture from rustic early houses of the ‘Sydney School’, via hi-tech to tensile structures. Nowadays Cox’s practice employs more than 350 staff and has completed projects in the Middle East, Africa, Europe, China and South-East Asia where he has designed the Helix Bridge and the Marina Bay Promenade, both in Singapore, and the Convention Centre in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.”
