Around the block: Irish Georgian Society revives awards scheme for restoration work

The Irish Georgian Society is dishing out architectural awards again.
After a lapse last year, the society has revived its scheme to recognise exceptionally good restoration work on historic buildings, whether castles or cottages.
The 2014 Architectural and Original Drawing Awards are open to Irish architects or architectural practices, building surveyors, engineers and other professionals involved in the conservation of historic buildings in Ireland.
There are two award categories, one for a conservation project and one for an original drawing (non-CAD!) relating to an historic building – and the deadline is June 6th. Further details are available at igs.ie/education/awards.
