RIBA President's Medals Exhibition 2017
The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) awards the RIBA President's Medals annually as a way to celebrate and promote excellence in the study of architecture, reward talent and encourage architectural debate worldwide.
First awarded in 1836 as the RIBA Silver Medal for an architectural essay (and from 1855 to "Measured Drawings" produced by a talented graduate), these are the RIBA's oldest awards (preceding the Royal Gold Medal, which was established in 1848) and are regarded as the most prestigious prize in architectural education worldwide.
The exhibition is hosted by American University of Sharjah in collaboration with RIBA and RIBA Gulf, as part of a Gulf-wide tour starting in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, in January 2017.
The exhibition will be on view in CAAD until May 1.
