Chris Hildrey’s ProxyAddress initiative triumphs among President’s Awards winners
A project designed to act as a lifeline to support services for people made homeless at the end of their tenancies has won the 2018 RIBA Research Medal.
Chris Hildrey’s “ProxyAddress” initiative uses the details of vacant properties to provide people struggling to find a stable home of their own with an address to give for communicating with services such as unemployment benefit and local authority housing help.
It does not require access to the property itself, but allows for the mail sent to the person assigned the address to be redirected so they can receive communications that cannot be sent digitally.
