Jamie Fobert CBE has been appointed as the Chair of the Architecture Foundation's board of Trustees.  The award-winning architect, who was unanimously elected to the post at the Architecture Foundation's recent Annual General Meeting, takes over from Cindy Walters on the conclusion of her term of office.

Fobert said of the appointment: 'For the past four years as a Trustee of the Architecture Foundation I have seen first hand the incredible work that Ellis and his team carry out, creating a vibrant and relevant programme which engages the whole architectural community of London and beyond.  I will do my upmost to support this work as Chair of the Trustees.'

Fobert's appointment coincides with the launch of an open call for applications from individuals interested in joining the board of trustees.
