The Society of Architectural Historians of Great Britain was founded in 1956. It is a group of people from the UK and beyond who are interested in the history of architecture, of all places and all periods of time. Some members are academics, some work in architectural practice and conservation, while for others their interest in architectural history is independent of their professional background or education.  We have a large and active membership.

The Society organises lectures, study days, foreign tours, conferences, symposia, and graduate student workshops. It makes grants towards the costs of research and publication, and provides funding for students working on Ph.D.s in architectural history. It is also well-known for its peer-reviewed journal, Architectural History, which is sent free to members, is found in subscribing libraries around the world, and is now also readily accessed online via JSTOR.

This website provides information on the Society’s activities, publications and funding opportunities.  It is complemented by our Twitter feed, Facebook page and YouTube channel.
