intelligent design. Historically, architecture has always


responded to society’s needs, creating new methods and materials that exploit the latest technical developments, all within the compass of affordable delivery. The George Clarke Medal will provide an opportunity for an inspirational step forward, perhaps for an experimental approach, certainly an unequivocally 21st Century occupants.


Century solution for 21st


“I am delighted and honoured that this Medal has been founded in my name as I am totally committed to championing design excellence in all areas of home improvement. In association with the NHIC our aim is to influence both the home improvement sector and the general public in the direction of


better design. There is huge public interest in housing, yet the government strategy remains stoutly focused on the need to build more new homes, instead of also realizing the opportunities which will arise for community transformation and social mobility through home improvement and renovation. Hopefully The Medal will give greater profile to the home improvement sector and attain the repute and profile now enjoyed by the respected Manser Medal which recognizes and rewards bespoke one- off new home design excellence and the talent of younger practitioners, many of whom launch their careers with domestic projects” – George Clarke BA (Hons) UCL DIPL, ARB, RIBA


The inaugural Medal will be presented to the winning architect(s) at the Gladstone Library, One Whitehall Place, Westminster on Thursday 22 November as the focal point of the National Home Improvement Council annual awards (www.nhic.org.uk). As with the Manser Medal (www.mansermedal.co.uk) those George Clarke Medal winning designs will, over the years, create an archive of exemplars to inspire the wider home improvement industry.


Submissions for the 2018 Medal can be made online at: www.georgeclarkemedal.co.uk Closing date for entries: Friday 27th
