Adjaye and Rogers back Owusu for president

David Adjaye in Winter Park Florida

Campaign endorsed by 60 architects including Richard Rogers and David Adjaye

David Adjaye and Richard Rogers have thrown their weight behind Elsie Owusu’s bid to become the next president of the RIBA.

The architects are among 60 who have endorsed her campaign. Others include Owen Luder, who has twice been president himself. The rest of the backers will only be identified once nominations are officially open, but BD understands there are some high-profile names.

Owusu and Alan Jones are the first two candidates to have announced they are standing.
