In spite of the difficulties the pandemic presents, the Society is pleased to launch its annual Awards programme; our prizes and awards rank among the most prestigious in architectural history internationally. We now have a programme of four awards, each targeted at different sections of the discipline. You do not need to be a member to participate.
For our Book Prizes, nomination is now open until 1 May 2020. Anyone can nominate any eligible title, and authors and publishers are welcome to self-nominate. Nominated titles will then be invited to formally submit for assessment by our judging panels.
For our Essay Prizes, submission by individuals is open until 1 September 2020. Prize winners will be announced at our Annual Lecture and Awards Ceremony in London (date, TBC).
The society welcomes submissions of work relating to the history of the built environment from all cognate disciplines and subdisciplines, including but by no means limited to Architecture, Art History, History and Geography.
We encourage work on as diverse a range of themes as possible, including histories of design; histories of planning; histories of construction; histories of buildings in use; histories of interiors and interior design; and histories of practice and professionalism.
We are looking for work in the history of the built environment that is innovative, ambitious and rigorous. Please consider submitting your own work and encouraging students, colleagues and friends to do so too.
