Michael has been awarded a CBE and Knighted for Services to Architecture.  He is a Royal Academician and recent Trustee of the British Museum and a past President of the Architectural Association. Their work is known for its use of innovative materials and construction techniques, energy-efficient designs and the ability to combine the contemporary with the traditional.
