Architecture Competition: The Architecture Drawing Prize 2022 are now Open for Submissions
In partnership with Make Architects and Sir John Soane’s Museum, World Architecture Festival announces the call for entries for the sixth edition of The Architecture Drawing Prize. Launched in 2017, the Prize was established to celebrate and showcase the art and skill of architectural drawing.
In the spirit of work by great architects of the past, from Palladio and John Soane to Le Corbusier and Cedric Price, The Architecture Drawing Prize is a platform for reflecting on and exploring how drawing continues to advance the art of architecture today. It embraces the creative use of digital tools and digitally-produced renderings while recognizing the enduring importance of hand drawing.
WAF invites entries of all types and forms – from conceptual to technical or construction drawings, cutaways, or perspective views – and anything in between. Entries are welcomed from architects, designers, and students from around the world in the following categories: Hand-drawn, Digital, and Hybrid (combining the two).
Submissions across the three categories will be evaluated based on their technical skill, originality of approach and ability to convey an architectural idea. Drawings can be entirely speculative or relate to real projects.
This year’s judges are Director of Sir John Soane’s Museum, Bruce Boucher; artist Pablo Bronstein; Founder of Lily Jencks Studio, Lily Jencks; artists Ben Langlands & Nikki Bell; Iris Ceramica Group CEO, Federica Minozzi; Senior Partner at Foster + Partners, Narinder Sagoo and Founder of Make Architects, Ken Shuttleworth.
The Overall 2022 Winner will be announced at the preview of The Architecture Drawing Prize exhibition at Sir John Soane’s Museum, which will run from February 8 to May 7, 2023, and feature a selection of winning and shortlisted entries. WAF will fund the Overall Winner to attend this preview event London.
Standard submission entry for the prize is £99 with a reduced rate of £49 for all entries by students and under-30s. There is also a multiple entry discount offered when submitting three or more projects. Entrants should use the code STANDARDMULTI10 or STUDENTMULTI10 at the checkout to save 10%
