George is a Patron of the Civic Trust Awards scheme.
The Civic Trust Awards was established in 1959 and operates on a not-for-profit basis.
The scheme has a strong reputation within the industry, recognising outstanding architecture, urban design, landscape and public art which improve the quality of life for local communities.
George said: “I’m honoured to be a Patron of the Civic Trust Awards. Successful buildings and public spaces can have an enormous effect on the everyday lives of our communities.
“It is so important that we continue to reward outstanding architecture in Britain and take pride in our heritage and built environment.
“The Civic Trust Awards does exactly that.”
Malcolm Hankey, Managing Director of the Civic Trust Awards said: “George Clarke immediately came to mind when selecting suitable Patrons of the Civic Trust Awards.
“He is very passionate about the way architecture can transform our everyday lives and shares our belief that architecture should be accessible to the public and be of benefit to the local community.
“George also has an excellent public profile, which will help us raise awareness of the scheme to a wider audience.”
