The Royal Institute of British Architects is requesting nominations for the second biennial Annie Spink Award, presented in recognition of an outstanding contribution to architectural education.
The Annie Spink Award is open to teachers (individuals or groups), working on any internationally recognised RIBA course, who are involved in the development of architectural education and engage with the process of teaching and learning.
The award is financed by the Annie Spink Trust Fund, which was established in 1974 by architect Herbert Spink FRIBA. He bequeathed the trust as a lasting memorial to his wife Annie, who died in 1938, and conceived it as an honour for the 'advancement of architectural education.'
The President of the RIBA will present the winner with the Annie Spink trophy and a cheque for £10,000 at a special ceremony at the RIBA on Tuesday 3 December 2002.
The 2002 Annie Spink Award will be judged by:
Alan Jones, Vice President (Education) RIBA
Kenneth Frampton, Ware Professor of Architecture, Columbia University, New York
Gwyn Lloyd Jones, Dissertation Medallist, RIBA President's Medals 2001
Richard MacCormac, MacCormac Jamieson Prichard
Kate Heron, Chair of Architecture, University of Westminster
Closing date for nominations is 12 July 2002
