Professor Flora Samuel wins RIBA President’s Award for Research

Professor Flora Samuel, CaCHE Place theme lead, has been awarded the RIBA President’s Awards for Research 2020 (Cities and Community).

She won the award jointly with Dr Eli Hatleskog  for their research project “Mapping social value” based in the University of Reading.

Their research explored how practitioners working in the urban environment can, through the co-design of maps with communities, capture and share attributes of a place which typically remain undervalued or hidden. The work continues as a Knowledge Transfer Partnership with Stantec, The Better Places Social Value Toolkit.
