The Architectural Review Awards for Emerging Architecture are entering their seventh year of launching a new generation of architects and designers onto the world scene. Inaugurated in 1999, the awards seek out and recognize new talent worldwide. They are supported by the multidisciplinary international consulting engineer Buro Happold.
This year the distinguished international jury will be Peter Davey, former Editor of the AR; Annette Gigon of Gigon/Guyer, Switzerland; Sean Godsell of Melbourne, Australia; Luis Mansilla of Mansilla+Tun, Madrid; and Thom Mayne of Morphosis, Los Angeles. Paul Finch, Editor of the AR, will chair the jury.
Prizes will be given in several categories to be decided by the jury. Submissions are encouraged in respect of all building types, interiors, urban design, landscape, bridges, temporary structures and manufactured products. Entrants, who must be under 45, may enter up to five projects. Awards are given for built or manufactured work only, ensuring that winners have passed the test of moving from theory to practice, drawings to reality.
Total prize money is 10,000 to be distributed as the jury decides. Award winners will be invited to a prize-giving ceremony to be held in London in early December 2005. Winners will also be invited to participate in the Spring Lecture Series at the Royal Institute of British Architects in London in March 2006.
Last year more than 500 entries from 52 countries were received for the awards. Five winners were chosen, with three highly commended, 11 commended schemes and three mentions. This year’s winning and commended projects will be published in a special issue of The Architectural Review in December 2005.
The deadline for receipt of entries is September 13, 2005. An administration fee of 50 (US $100 or 75) is payable for each entry submitted.
