The winners of the Architectural Review 2017 Emerging Architecture Award are Christelle Avenier and Miguel Cornejo. The duo’s social housing project in Paris was selected as winners by the judges. All finalists gathered in Berlin this year to present their projects to a panel consisting of Marina Tabassum, Martyn Hook, and Matthias Sauerbruch. For the last two-years, the jury has received the applications at the World Architecture Festival.

The Chicago Architecture Biennial has announced the list of participants invited to contribute to the event’s second edition, which will be held from September 16 to January 7, 2018 in Chicago. More than 100 architecture firms and artists have been selected by 2017 artistic directors Sharon Johnston and Mark Lee, founders of Los Angeles–based Johnston Marklee, to design exhibitions that will be displayed at the Chicago Cultural Center and throughout the city.
“Our goal for the 2017 Chicago Architecture Biennial is to continue to build on the themes and ideas presented in the first edition,” explained Johnston and Lee. “We hope to examine, through the work of the chosen participants, the continuous engagement with questions of history and architecture as an evolutionary practice.”
Dutch firm Studio Anne Holtrop has won the 2016 Challenge of The Time, an international architectural prize named by architect and artist Iakov Chernikhov. Now in its fifth iteration, the prize honors young architects up to 44 years old for the “best architectural project concepts that [feature an] innovative approach” and face “challenges to the future.”
Studio Anne Holtrop’s work varies from spatial temporary models and pavilions to extensive public buildings. For instance, over the past several years, the studio has designed the Museum Fort Behten near Utrect, and the National Pavilion of Bahrain for the EXPO exhibition in Milan, as well as for the Venice Biennale.
