Recognising his tremendous contribution and lifelong services to architecture, His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, will be conferred the prestigious Honourary Fellowship of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA).

His Highness the Ruler of Sharjah will formally receive the Honourary Fellowship at a grand ceremony in London in February, according to a statement by RIBA.

The RIBA Honorary Fellowships are awarded annually to people who are not architects but have made a particular contribution to architecture.

The Honourary Fellowship of the Royal Institute of British Architects for the Ruler of Sharjah is being seen as a huge honour that recognises and acknowledges the historic journey of a lifetime and extraordinary contribution of the Sharjah leadership to architecture in general and to Arab and Islamic architecture in particular.
