Congratulations to Prof Kester Rattenbury (DS15 tutor) and Tumpa Fellows (PhD researcher within the Experimental Practices research team and BSc Architectural Technology tutor) who have been shortlisted for this year’s RIBA President’s Award for Research, in History and Theory, and Annual Theme: Building in Quality categories, respectively.

The President’s Awards for Research celebrate the best research in the fields of architecture and the built environment and have again attracted interest from around the globe, with entries from China to Peru. The scope of entries continues to illustrate a strong focus on people and community over buildings, featuring parallel themes such as social injustice and climate change.
