The award, adjudicated by the Institute of Historic Building Conservation (IHBC), recognises the achievement of India’s MSt dissertation which explored Nicholas Barbon’s redevelopment, commencing in 1679, of the Middle Temple, London.  In the past year, India’s research formed the basis of a paper she contributed to the Georgian Group’s ‘Georgian London Revisited’ symposium. She is now expanding her research focus to examine the architecture of all the Inns of Court in the late seventeenth century and will be commencing a PhD in Cambridge this October with funding from the AHRC and the Isaac Newton Trust.
