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/or reinstatement to return a heritage building (interior and/or exterior) or site to its original or early architectural form and appearance for the same use pertaining to that period.
An Adaptive Reuse project is one that adapts a heritage building (interior and/or exterior) or site to accommodate a new use and may include new addition(s), alteration or restoration or any combination of these.
An Interpretation project is one that interprets the heritage value of a heritage building (interior and/or exterior) or site for the general public, such as a permanent or temporary exhibition, an interpretation centre or museum located within a heritage site or building, or by 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.
