HKICON Conservation Awards 2020

The Hong Kong Institute of Architectural Conservationists (HKICON) announced the winners of the 2020 HKICON Conservation Awards. The jury awarded two winners in the adaptive reuse category as a recognition of merit in their unique site-specific approaches; and one Special Mention in the restoration category. Chaired by HKICON, a panel of conservation experts met to review six submissions spanning three categories — restoration, adaptive reuse and interpretation. The Jury deliberation was conducted in early February.


Thanks for submitting!
