The Open Door project, delivered in partnership with Royal Institute of British Architects, is a programme to promote and celebrate outstanding conservation work by emerging architects in the UK and mainland China.
The project will celebrate the best of recent architecture heritage projects, champion the environmental and cultural benefits of building conservation, and promote knowledge exchange between experts in both countries. The project is aimed at architects that are no more than ten years qualified, to encourage more young professionals to become involved in the sector and build relationships with experienced practitioners.
Projects will fit into two categories:
- Twentieth Century (C20) heritage buildings
- Historic buildings built before 1901
