Call for entries: Archiprix International 2005
Archiprix International invites all universities and colleges teaching architecture, urban design and landscape architecture to select their best graduation project and ask the designer(s) to submit the selected project for participation. Designers graduated since 1 January 2003 can apply. Projects will be presented in the exhibition, on the website and in a book with Cd-rom. The designers of the projects will be invited for the workshops taking place in June in Glasgow. Participation is free of charge.
After successful editions in 2001 in Rotterdam and 2003 in Istanbul, Archiprix International will again stage a unique presentation of the world's best graduation projects in the fields of architecture, urban design and landscape architecture. Archiprix International 2005 takes place in June in Glasgow. This third edition will be hosted and co-organised by The Lighthouse, Scotland's Centre for Architecture, Design and The City.
For this years edition over 1200 faculties from more than 100 countries have been invited to take part. This makes Archiprix International by far the biggest competition for graduated architecture students. No other competition for young designer displays such a broad insight in world-wide trends in architecture education and the field of architecture in general.
Until December 1 of this year the selected graduates can submit their projects. In spring all entries will be reviewed by an international jury and from the middle of June the best entries are on display in The Lighthouse.
Hunter Douglas Awards
On June 24 2005 the best projects will receive the Hunter Douglas Awards, during a special award ceremony in Glasgow. The awards carry the name of our partner Hunter Douglas, producer of well known brands like Luxaflex and Luxalon.
The award ceremony in Glasgow is accompanied by a conference, a series of presentations of participating projects, and an exhibition. The designers of the best graduation projects can also participate in an international design workshop the week before the award ceremony.
The Archiprix website will display a growing web presentation of the submitted projects. This website also contains a presentation of the projects submitted for the 2001 and 2003 editions and the world's largest database of universities and colleges teaching architecture, urban design and landscape architecture.
