Professor Ian Montgomery, Dean of the Faculty of Art, Design and the Built Environment, invites you to a public lecture by Professor Stephen Hodder MBE, RIBA President.
Professor Stephen Hodder was educated at the School of Architecture, University of Manchester, where he gained a Distinction in the Bachelor of Architecture degree. He has been in practice since 1983 and in 1992 formed Hodder Associates which won the Royal Fine Art Commission / Sunday Times Building of the Year Award for Colne Swimming Pool later that year. Shortly afterwards he won a limited competition to extend the Arne Jacobsen's Grade 1 Listed St Catherine's College in Oxford and established a client relationship which has now extended for some 20 years.
In 1996 Hodder Associates received the most important award in British Architecture for a single building, the inaugural Stirling Prize for Architecture for the Centenary Building, University of Salford. The Practice has now won over thirty major awards.
Professor Hodder was awarded an MBE for services to architecture in the Queen's Birthday Honours List, 1998. He received an honorary doctorate in 2006 from the Manchester Metropolitan University for his regional, national and international contribution to architecture and won the Roses Design Award of 'Architect of the Year' in the same year. He is currently President of the Royal Institute of British Architects and in 2012 was appointed as Visiting Professor at the Belfast School of Architecture, University of Ulster.
