The IHBC & Society of Architectural Historians of Great Britain (SAHGB) write:

This new award – a joint venture between the SAHGB and IHBC – recognises and celebrates the quality of architectural-historical research produced by colleagues in heritage and conservation practice, as private consultants or on behalf of Non-Governmental Organisations, public bodies or comparable clients.

Moreover, methodological reflection on this work, and on heritage and preservationism more widely, adds much to practice of architectural history. Our Heritage Research Award will provide an opportunity to understand better the diversity of this work, celebrate the very best of the research that goes into it, and provide an opportunity to make it better known to other professionals and the public….
