Archiprix International is proud to announce the start of her ninth edition. After successful editions in 2001 in Rotterdam, 2003 in Istanbul, 2005 in Glasgow, 2007 in Shanghai, 2009 in Montevideo, 2011 in Cambrigde (USA), 2013 in Moscow and 2015 in Madrid, Archiprix International will again stage a unique presentation of the world's best graduation projects in architecture, urban design and landscape architecture. The Archiprix International 2017 will take place in Ahmedabad India. We are honoured that the CEPT university is our co-organisers for the 2017 edition.
All 1700 universities from more than 100 countries are invited to take part. From the start in 2001 already 785 universities participated in one or more editions, in total we received 1928 graduation projects. This makes Archiprix International by far the biggest competition for newly graduated architects, urban designers and landscape architects. No other competition for young talented designers displays such a broad insight in worldwide trends in education in the fields of architecture, urban design, and landscape architecture.
The best projects, selected by an international jury, will receive the Hunter Douglas Awards at a special award ceremony. The awards carry the name of our partner Hunter Douglas, producer of well known brands like Luxaflex and Luxalon. The award ceremony is accompanied by a conference, a series of presentations of participating projects, and an exhibition. The designers of the best graduation projects can participate in an international design workshop the week before the award ceremony.
Call for entries. Archiprix International invites all universities and colleges teaching architecture, urban design and landscape architecture to select their best graduation project and to ask the designer(s) to submit the selected project for participation.
