A small grants programme for local projects that address today’s built environment challenges.

The International Network for Traditional Building, Architecture and Urbanism (INTBAU) was established in 2001, and has since gained 40 chapters and over 9,000 members in more than 100 countries and regions. We work under the patronage of our founder, The former Prince of Wales.

INTBAU’s mission is to support traditional building, the maintenance of local character, and the creation of better places to live. We do this through workshops, summer schools, study tours, conferences, awards, and competitions.
