The Architecture Drawing Prize



The Architecture Drawing Prize

The Architecture Drawing Prize 2021 is now closed.

Now in its fifth year, the Prize celebrates the importance of drawing as a tool in capturing and communicating architectural ideas. In the spirit of many great architects of the past, from Palladio and John Soane to Le Corbusier and Cedric Price, it's an ideal platform for reflecting on and exploring how drawing continues to advance the art of architecture today.

The annual competition - sponsored this year by Gleeds - invites architects, designers and students around the world to submit entries in three categories: hand-drawn, digital or hybrid. Curated by Make Architects, Sir John Soane's Museum and WAF, the prize is judged by the likes of Ken Shuttleworth, artists Ben Langlands and Nikki Bell, and Foster + Partners' head of design communication Narinder Sagoo.

Winning and shortlisted drawings are displayed at Sir John Soane's Museum and WAF 2021. For the 2020 competition, Make designed a virtual gallery to showcase them. The winners also receive a delegate pass to WAF, where they'll have their work displayed and be presented with an award.

ArchDaily and The Architecture Drawing Prize hosted a free-to-attend, live drawing workshop on Monday 9 August at 5pm BST on Zoom with Narinder Sagoo, Art Director at Foster + Partners PLUS Ken Shuttleworth, Founder and Jason Parker, Director at Make Architects.
