RIBA Research Commendation For CAN Project

120-RIBAImageThe Climate Adaptive Neighbourhoods (CAN) Project has received a commendation in the 2014 RIBA President’s Awards for Research.  Funded by the Technology Strategy Board, the project progressed Baca’s LifE (Long Term Initiatives for Flood-risk Environments) Project, itself a winner of a 2009 President’s Medal for Research.  The CAN project is a holistic design initiative to climate adaptive domestic buildings in flood-prone areas.

No overall winner was announced in the Award for Outstanding Practice-led Research, however the judges felt the Baca research deserved recognition: “This detailed analysis of the East Norwich housing that was a case study in the practice’s LifE Project research resulted in findings that are pertinent and applicable to future developments on flood-prone sites.  The judges felt this excellent research worthy of a commendation.”
