The Phil Gusack Essay Prize
Architects for Health are launching the Phil Gusack Essay Prize this year as his family’s memorial to AFH member Phil Gusack who died in 2009 after some years of ill health. Phil was an active member of AfH with a passion for architecture who believed strongly in disruptive innovation and excellence and was challenging and inventive in debate. This generous legacy funds an annual prize for the best essay on the architecture of health. The prize is open to all people including students, professionals and journalists.
