The Council of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) will award John Smith, BBC Director of Finance, Property & Business Affairs, an Honorary Fellowship today, Tuesday 4 May 2004.

RIBA Honorary Fellowships reward the particular contributions people make to architecture in its broadest sense: its promotion, administration and outreach, its role in building more sustainable communities and its role in the education of future generations.

John Smith has been instrumental in realising the recent regeneration of the BBC's property portfolio, championing adventurous architecture and design across the BBC's entire estate.

The BBC has recently embarked on a new, ambitious property strategy to create inspirational architecture and working environments which encourage staff creativity and are welcoming to the public.

The property strategy includes the creation of the new BBC Media Village at White City by Allies and Morrison, the redevelopment of BBC Broadcasting House in London by MacCormac Jamieson Prichard, the creation of a new headquarters for BBC Scotland at Pacific Quay in Glasgow by David Chipperfield Architects and the creation of a new music centre for the BBC in London, The Music Box, by Foreign Office Architects.
