Visiting Professor of Architecture J Stevens Curl has been awarded the prestigious President’s Medal from the British Academy for his contribution to the study of the History of Architecture in Britain and Ireland.

The President's Medal rewards outstanding service to the cause of the humanities and social sciences. It covers a broad range of activities, including insightful journalism contributing to public understanding, use of research in policymaking, and public leadership.

Previous winners of the award include the managing director of the Barbican Centre, Sir Nicholas Kenyon, Baroness Shami Chakrabarti CBE, the former head of human rights group Liberty, and Clive James, the Australian author, journalist and broadcaster.

Speaking about the award, Professor J Stevens Curl said:“I am incredibly honoured to have received the President’s Medal. The Award was wholly unexpected but I am extremely proud to be recognised by the British Academy for my contribution to the study of the History of Architecture in Britain and Ireland.

Professor Alastair Adair, Deputy Vice Chancellor, said: “The President’s Medal is a fitting award for Professor Stevens Curl’s outstanding contribution to his field of study for over 50 years. This prestigious award is testament to the quality of our staff and our commitment to deliver outstanding research and teaching.”
