The Architecture Drawing Prize
Make, Sir John Soane’s Museum and the World Architecture Festival have come together again to curate The Architecture Drawing Prize. The Prize is unique in offering commended and winning entrants the opportunity to exhibit at Sir John Soane's Museum in London. In addition to this, Make’s editorial team hosts a wide-reaching digital media campaign further expanding the discourse on architectural drawing.
The Architecture Drawing Prize welcomes entries from architects, designers and students from around the world while celebrating drawing's significance as a tool in capturing and communicating ideas. This is in the spirit of many great architects of the past from Palladio to John Soane, Le Corbusier and Cedric Price, who used drawing to advance the art of architecture. How is this happening today in our highly visually driven culture and with so many tools available to us? The Drawing Prize is an important platform to reflect on such questions.
In addition to a display of selected entries, WAF will programme a Festival Stage event with the winners of the three Prize categories: hand-drawn; hybrid; digital. This, and the coverage generated in the press and through the curators’ social media channels, will give visibility to the winners and commended entrants.
The shortlisted entrants will be exhibited at Sir John Soane's Museum from mid-October to mid-November in London. The Prize results will be publicly announced at WAF in November at the RAI Amsterdam.
The overall winner will receive a WAF delegate pass including a gala dinner ticket and will have travel and two hotel nights paid. The two other category winners will each receive a complementary delegate pass with gala dinner tickets and two hotel nights paid.
ENTRIES ARE NOW CLOSED FOR 2017
