It's graduation time. As universities around the globe - or at least most in the Northern hemisphere, where over 80% of the world's universities are located - come to the end of the academic year, many university architecture studios have recently closed out the construction of pavilions, installations and other small educational projects. At ArchDaily, we've already received a number of submissions from students and professors who would like to see their studio's work reach a larger audience, such as the example above from Cornell University's "A Journey Into Plastics" seminar, and the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee's studio project completed with the assistance of Marcus Prizewinner Sou Fujimoto (more on that project here). But we're interested in doing something more.
With students graduating in so many different countries and their work influenced by so many different cultures, we think now is the perfect time* to take the pulse of the next generation of architects from all over the world by presenting the best of these submissions together in one post. That's why, together with all of ArchDaily en Español and with ArchDaily Brasil, we're reaching out to our readers to submit their projects, so that we can present the best work from graduating students worldwide.
Please use the form below to submit a Google Drive Folder containing images and a brief description of your project. Submissions close on Monday, June 15th at 12:00pm ET (Update: Submissions are now open until Monday, June 22nd at 12:00pm ET!)
- Projects must be real-life construction projects (no unbuilt proposals).
- Projects must have involved the work of students, and have been undertaken for educational purposes.

- Please set the permissions of the Google Drive Folder to "Anyone with the link can edit"

* With apologies to readers in the Southern hemisphere, many of whom graduated over six months ago - we would still love to see your completed projects!
