Competition :: International VELUX Award 2016
Register by: 4.1.16
Submit by: 6.15.16
The International VELUX Award wants to encourage and challenge students of architecture to explore the theme of daylight - and to create a deeper understanding of this specific and ever-relevant source of energy, light and life.
The award encourages projects that celebrate the privilege of being a student with curiosity and with the willingness to think “out of the box” – as well as consider the social, sociological and environmental dimension of light.
The award is an open ideas competition and it is organised globally in two phases: in the first phase, regional prizes will be awarded to projects from the UIA member regions 1) Western Europe, 2) Eastern Europe and the Middle East, 3) the Americas, 4) Asia+ Oceania and 5) Africa. In the second phase, prizes will be awarded to overall winners.
The award is not restricted to the use of VELUX products. Innovative thinking and use of specific VELUX components as daylight providers will however be within the scope of the award and the jury will be allowed to give special prizes to the best projects.
