Peter Murray, CBE.  Architect and founder London Festival of Architecture.

Chairman: Hugh Pearman

Architecture is one of Britain's unsung export achievements, with a large amount of design work carried out in the UK for building overseas: many firms also run foreign offices. The profession enjoys higher status internationally than it does back home, but don’t be fooled by the star status of a few: this is not a lucrative profession for most in it. Training is long and expensive, hours long, and fees often low. The satisfactions, however, can be great. Our list is a cross-section of the leading people involved in getting buildings built, both as architects and as patrons and champions of architecture. 

Hugh Pearman is an architecture and design critic. He is editor of the RIBA Journal and architecture critic for the Sunday Times. He has also contributed to The Guardian, the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times and the Royal Academy Magazine, and many other media. Hugh was one of the co-founders of the Stirling Prize for Architecture in 1996, and in 2001 he was made an honorary fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects.
