 “Protecting architectural heritage is a vital part of cultural life.  Architecture is the most vulnerable art form and one that I have been passionate about all my life. I’m delighted my Foundation can support the Heritage Angel Awards for the third year in Northern Ireland and shine a spotlight on those who have made a significant contribution towards protecting the country’s heritage.  By raising awareness of the impact individuals can have, our aim is to inspire others to get involved and work together to save and protect Northern Ireland’s heritage for our future generations.”
