Open to any student of architecture or architect who has graduated within three years prior to their submission, the ISARCH Awards are international awards providing a platform for debate surrounding student solutions to architecture’s problems. The competition highlights avant-garde trends and recognizes new research emerging from university studies. By extending the traditional relationship of student to university, young people are encouraged to join the debate on architecture, contributing fresh new visions and opinions.
The evaluation process will involve both a panel of judges and public voting. Eighty percent of the final score will be decided by the judges, while the remaining 20% will come from public voting on the ISARCH website.
The final date for entries will be October 15, 2015. From November 1 to November 20, 2015, all competition entries will be published on the ISARCH website, with judges deliberating and public voting happening. On November 24 all winners, honourable mentions and finalists will be announced.
First prize will be €3,000 and an HP Designjet Web Connected Printer; second prize will be €2,000; a special prize will be the publication “The role of architecture in the well-being of communities lead by The Prince’s Foundation for Building Community” presented by Dr. Matthew Hardy, and €1,000. All prizes will include a subscription to On Diseño magazine and 2G magazine. There are agreements for professional practice at various studios and publication of the submitted work in journals and websites partnered with ISARCH for all winners, honourable mentions and finalists available.
