About the event
Join the SPAB for an evening exploring how good new design work can be used to sympathetically revitalise neglected old buildings and bring them back into use. As well as discussing the SPAB’s approach to new design in historic contexts, we will be hearing from the two joint winners of last year’s Philip Webb Award, each of whom will present their winning schemes and discuss how they relate to the theme of place and memory.

The 2016 winners were:
Bethan Watson - Citta della Memoria: a scheme for the earthquake-damaged Italian town of L’Aquila
Cristiano Lamarque - conversion of the former Convent of Sao Bento de Castris at Evora, Portugal into a centre caring for Alzheimer’s’ sufferers. 

Talks will be followed by a presentation of the 2016 Philip Webb Award 2016 winners’ certificates and an informal drinks reception. For more information, download the PROVISIONAL PROGRAMME

This event is taking place as part of the 2017 London Festival of Architecture which runs from 1-30 June 2017 and is based this year around the theme of ‘memory’. To see more about the Festival and other events and activities taking place, visit
