Philip Webb Award

Philip Webb Award

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.

The submission period for entries will open on 20 July and closes at 5pm on 14 September 2018. Judging takes place on 15 November 2018.
