SIR DENYS LASDUN has been awarded the 1992 Royal Institute of British Architects Trustees' Medal, not for his most famous building - the National Theatre on London's South Bank - but for the earlier Royal College of Physicians in Regent's Park, London.

The jury described the college, now more than 25 years old, as 'an eloquent demonstration of the marriage of old and new in terms of the Classical and Modern traditions'. The college says the building 'surprises and pleases all those who attend the many activities, and is a centre of pilgrimage for numerous students of architecture'.
