RIBA President’s Awards for Research announced

20 October 2010 | By Elizabeth Hopkirk

The RIBA has announced its President’s Awards for Research 2010, which reward and encourage outstanding research in architecture.

The Award for Outstanding PhD Thesis was awarded to Victoria Perry of the Bartlett for her thesis, Slavery, Sugar and the Sublime which the judges described as part of our “coming to terms” with Britain’s colonial past.

Perry’s study looks particularly at ways in which large country estates in the north and west of Britain, assembled relatively quickly through new wealth, are totally disengaged from the income that supports them, unlike traditional agricultural estates.

Nikolaos D Karydis of the University of Bath was commended in the same category for his thesis, Early Byzantine Vaulted Construction in Churches of the Western Coastal Plains and River Valleys of Asia Minor.

Albena Yaneva of the University of Manchester was awarded the Award for Outstanding University-located Research for An Ethnography of Architecture.

The judges said: “This type of sociological and anthropological research into design practice is significant for architecture, adding a new perspective to the way we understand architectural processes. The two books are enjoyable to read, linking through hypertextual narratives an impressive quantity of historical information and technical data, stories and anecdotes, theoretical research and empirical observations.”

The Award for Outstanding Professional Practice-located Research was given to Andrew Waugh of Waugh Thistleton Architects for the project Stadthaus, Murray Grove.

Commendations wwent to CJ Lim and Ed Liu of Studio8 Architects, and Aedas’s Computational Design and Research team.
