Student competition launched

Open to all architecture students or trainee architects, WAN is inviting submissions that further the aims of Better cities, better lives – the UN initiative established to meet the challenges of urbanisation through developing business practices, models and technologies. This initiative ties in with the UIA-nominated theme for World Architecture Day 2012 – Architects are city changers, which addresses the increasing responsibility of architects in shaping the urban fabric of an ever-increasing global population.

Assessing the entries will be a distinguished panel of WAN AWARD judges, who will be looking for the most innovative and creative ideas, concepts and notated sketches rather than detailed drawings. Entrants are given free rein to select a specific city and address a particular challenge or design a generic solution. The only stipulation is that entries are sent as a PDF in A2 portrait format. The winner, drawn from a shortlist of six, will be announced at World Architecture Day.

It’s FREE to enter and the winner will receive an iPad, PLUS have their submission published on WAN’s News Review, which reaches nearly a quarter of a million subscribers. Please click HERE for instructions.

To be in with a chance to win, send your entries to by Friday 07 September. Good luck!

    This is a great opportunity!!!! I would like to know if we have to design the whole city or it is any specific interest… I would also like to know if there are any participation certificates…

  2. Are fresh graduates (holding bachelors only) eligible to participate?
