Dr Kat Martindale, RIBA Head of Research and Innovation, said:

“We were thrilled to receive so many research projects this year, and from all over the world. The work submitted provides a glimpse of the global workings and interactions of architects, students and academics but it has been the number of collaborations that have stood out this year.”

Peter Clegg, chair of the judging panel and Senior Partner at Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, said:

“Research is embedded in architectural best practice: innovation depends on it, conceptual thought demands it and the profession needs to recognise it more than it does at present.

“We were gratified therefore that the redefinition of the RIBA President’s Awards for Research has resulted in an unprecedented increase in responses from practice, as well as a record number of submissions from the UK and around the world.”

Background:

The RIBA President’s Awards for Research were established in order to reward and encourage outstanding research in architecture carried out by students, academics and practitioners. The awards are given in four categories: Cities and Community, Design and Technical, History and Theory and an annual theme, which this year was Learning From Projects.
