Entries for the Philip Webb annual award for recent graduates and Part II students at UK Schools of Architecture will close on 11 September.
The SPAB writes:
Named in honour of the SPAB’s co-founder, architect Philip Webb, the Award encourages and celebrates the sympathetic reuse of old buildings and sensitive new design in an historic context. It’s a unique opportunity for students and architects in the early stages of their career to demonstrate their understanding of repair techniques, and their engagement with the SPAB’s principles in fitting new to old, as well as their design flair.
The Philip Webb Award will be held again in 2017 for current Part II students, and recent graduates of UK Schools of Architecture who completed their studies in 2015 or 2016. They are invited to put forward a scheme to revitalise a building of their choosing which has decayed or been neglected, but which can be repaired and adapted for a sympathetic new use.
The submission period closes at 5pm on 11 September 2017
