Research team book shortlisted for two prestigious prizes.
Basil Spence: buildings and projects ed. L.Campbell, M.Glendinning and J. Thomas (RIBA Publishing 2012) was recently shortlisted for two prestigious book prizes: The Society of Architectural Historians of Great Britain's Alice David Hitchcock Medallion, 2012, for an outstanding contribution to the literature of architectural history, and the William MB Berger Prize for British Art History, 2013.
The Berger prize judges described it as follows:...
'This elegantly produced book is hugely impressive and to the point, filling in much invaluable material and making sense of 20th-century Modernism in Britain and the place of Spence within it. An example to all of how to combine several contributions into a whole, that was the product of a vast amount of research.'
An exhibition to mark Spence’s enduring contribution to the University, bringing together for the first time the University’s own collection of original drawings (some by Spence), models, photographs and artifacts. Original research by Professor Howard and by the country’s leading Spence scholar, Sussex alumna Dr Louise Campbell, brings out the significance of the buildings, while Spence himself will be seen giving his views in archive film as part of the visitor experience. Opens 10 May 2012.
Book edited by Louise Campbell, Miles Glendinning and Jane Thomas
