flyerThe Philip Webb Award, an annual award from the SPAB for recent graduates and Part II students at UK Schools of Architecture is announced.

The SPAB writes:

Judged by an expert architectural panel, the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (SPAB) Philip Webb Award is a design-orientated competition encouraging sympathetic reuse of existing buildings and sensitive new design in an historic context. The competition is a unique opportunity for students and architects in the early stages of their career who are interested in sustainability, reuse of old buildings and conservation practice to engage with the SPAB’s principles and showcase their skills.

The brief: To devise a scheme which sympathetically revitalises a historic building for reuse. The scheme should incorporate both careful repair of existing fabric and a significant element of new construction in a contemporary design.
