Owen Luder Obituary: We are deeply shocked to learn about the sad demise of Owen Luder, died at the age of 93. Born in 1928, he formed the Owen Luder Partnership in 1957, with architect Rodney Gordon joining the same year. He was the only person committed (or mad) enough to serve as President of the RIBA on two separate occasions, more than a decade apart. On his second watch, he approved our pitch for the Stirling Prize.
