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.

If you are not already a member: join us!

An amazing afternoon on Zoom with ARCH/TECTURES ARCH/VES #Symposium2020: “This session delves into the symbiotic relationship between practice and pedagogy that lies at the heart of architectural archives.” Thanks to @TheSAHGB @RIBA_London @AASchool !!


Thank you to everyone who was able to join us for part 2 of #Symposium2020 this afternoon- we hope you found it as interesting and enjoyable as we did! And a special thanks to everyone involved in the organisation of the symposium and who presented a paper today.


Last but not least the extensive archive of A J Davis - including many wonderful drawings - held at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art is persuasively repositioned in American historical context by ⁦@HoratioJoyce⁩ for ⁦@TheSAHGB⁩ #Symposium2020

@TheSAHGB the talks from Edward Bottoms, Eleanor Gawne, and Volker Welter have me so inspired and ready for my instruction sessions this fall. Architecture archives as sources of inspiration and challenge to current canons 🙌

Brilliant organisation of @TheSAHGB Annual Symposium. Thanks for the wonderful coordination by @Annmarieinyork @EwanMHarrison @IntrWr @EdBottoms and Eleanor Gawne.
