Philip Webb Award entries invited, with submissions closing 14 September

Entries are now invited for the 2020 Philip Webb Award, while the submissions will close at 5pm on 14 September 2020.

The Society for the Preservation of Ancient Buildings(SPAB) writes:

First awarded in 1993, the Philip Webb Award sets architects in the early stages of their career a demanding but exciting dual conservation and design challenge.

The brief is to devise a scheme which sympathetically revitalises a historic building for reuse through careful repair of existing fabric and a significant element of new construction in a contemporary design. It’s a unique opportunity for those interested in sustainability, the reuse of old buildings and in developing experience in conservation practice to engage with the SPAB’s principles and showcase their skills. The competition is open to recent graduates and current Part II students at UK Schools of Architecture.

Entries are now invited for the 2020 Philip Webb Award.  The submission period will open on 20 July and close at 5pm on 14 September 2020.  Notes for Entrants and entry forms are available here.

Shortlisted entrants will be invited to present their schemes at an assessment day and the results of the competition will be announced in autumn 2020.    Prizes will be presented at an SPAB event in London on 8 December 2020.
