Here's a note from Oliver Gerrish, DHBT Trustee and Architecture Awards coordinator:
"This year will be the 4th DHBT Architecture Awards. We feel these awards are a way of publicly thanking those people who go out of their way to build, re-build or restore historic buildings, or create new buildings with integrity to stand by the old. Since their inception, the awards have celebrated dozens of schemes - from the vernacular to the grand, from the industrial to the sacred and more. Our criteria is open to all projects completed in the last five years that have an historic (pre WW11) association, and we hugely appreciate you applying. Our team of judges relish the chance to see projects all over the county, and bring them to a wider audience, as we celebrate our heritage together.
Please spread the word and apply - we look forward to celebrating your hard work."
