In the spirit of many great architects of the past, from Palladio and John Soane to Le Corbusier and Cedric Price, The Architecture Drawing Prize explores how drawing continues to advance the art of architecture today.

“Drawing in architecture is undergoing a renaissance as practitioners seek new modes of representation beyond the confines of the slick hyper-realistic render. In this new guise, drawing is emerging as a vital tool in developing architectural ideas and disseminating them online or in print. Now in its third year, the Architecture Drawing Prize celebrates the renewed importance of drawing and the diversity of approaches that define it,” says Owen Hopkins, Sir John Soane’s Museum.

Entries by architects, designers and students from around the world are welcomed in the following categories: hand-drawing, digital and hybrid.

This year, the prize is introducing a new category: the working detail drawing, which supports entries by architects with a passion for working details.

Submissions across the four categories will be evaluated on the basis of their technical skill, originality in approach and ability to convey an architectural idea.

The winners and shortlist will be on display at a dedicated exhibition at Sir John Soane’s Museum in London.

The category winners will also receive a delegate pass, tickets to the Gala Dinner and two nights in a hotel for the World Architecture Festival in Amsterdam.

Entry deadline is 27th September.
