HKICON CONSERVATION AWARDs
ABOUT THE AWARD
Launched in 2018, the Hong Kong Institute of Architectural Conservationists (HKICON) Conservation Awards are awards dedicated to the recognition of professionals in the field of architectural conservation. The awards recognise architectural conservationists for achieving excellence in conservation projects in Hong Kong.
A Restoration project is one that involves repair and maintenance to return a heritage building (interior and/or exterior) or site back to its original architectural splendour for the same use for which it was originally designed.
An Adaptive Reuse project is one that involves a new use of a heritage building (interior and/or exterior) or site and may include new addition, modification and restoration to render a heritage building or site suitable for a new functional purpose that is different from its original use.
An Interpretation project is one that involves means of interpreting the heritage information of a heritage building (interior and/or exterior) or site for the general public, such as in the form of a permanent or temporary exhibition, an interpretation centre or a small museum attached to a heritage site or building, or other electronic means.
The Jury Panel
Chaired by the HKICON Council, a panel of local and overseas conservation experts will be formed to review submissions spanning three categories — Restoration, Adaptive Reuse and Interpretation.
