Fiona Hamilton of Fredericton, New Brunswick is the first winner of the The Arts and Letters Club of Toronto Foundation’s Award for Architectural Conservation. The award was created in partnership with the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada Foundation (RAICF) and presented at the RAIC’s 2022 Virtual Conference on Architecture in June 2022. It recognizes Richard Moorhouse for his leadership as the Founding President of The Arts and Letters Club of Toronto Foundation, and former Chair of the National Trust for Canada and in appreciation of his life-long contributions, both as a professional and as a volunteer, to the field of heritage conservation.
The $1000 annual award is the RAICF’s first to highlight architectural conservation. It will be awarded to a student at an accredited Canadian school of architecture or a recent architecture graduate working on applied research and/or projects that are making a tangible contribution to the field of architectural conservation.
