PMC Books Shortlisted for the Alice Davis Hitchcock Medallion

  • 2 August 2023

Mark Crinson's Shock City and G. A. Bremner's Building Greater Britain have been shortlisted for the Alice Davis Hitchcock Medallion.

The Alice Davis Hitchcock Medallion is awarded to a monograph that makes an outstanding contribution to the study of architectural history – previous winners include Howard Colvin, Dorothy Stroud, John Summerson, Nikolaus Pevsner, Hermione Hobhouse and Jill Lever.

The winners will be selected in the autumn and celebrated at the Society’s Annual Awards Ceremony in December 2023.

The awards are overseen by the Society of Architectural Historians of Great Britain (SAHGB) to reward work that is innovative, ambitious and rigorous in tackling histories of the built environment as broadly conceived. The SAHGB’s awards programme, which also includes the ‘Hawksmoor’ Essay Medal, Dissertation Prize, and a Heritage Research Award, a joint venture with the Institute of Historic Building Conservation, is open and inclusive wherever possible, celebrating diversity of approach and recognising work at all career levels.
