Enter Velux Awards for Architecture Students

I have received the following announcement from The Architectural Review (UK) and a Velux, manufacturers of skylights and blinds:


  The VELUX Group challenges students of architecture from all over the world to explore and investigate daylight in architecture under the overall theme Light of Tomorrow. With a generous prize fund of 30,000 euros, the International VELUX Award is open to creative reflections on the role of daylight in architecture; not just as a design component or external factor, but as a central issue concerned with shaping architecture and promoting sustainability.

Entrants can freely explore the role of daylight in the built environment, whether focusing on daylight in urban contexts, in individual buildings, or as a more abstract concept.

The Award encourages an open-minded dialogue on the nature of the light of tomorrow based on experimental approaches and imaginative thinking. In particular, it focuses on the importance of sunlight and daylight in the context of sustainable development, taking human needs and the rhythms and balances of nature into account.

This year’s international jury comprises Craig Dykers, founding partner of Snøhetta; Roísín Heneghan founding partner of Heneghan Peng Architects; Magda Mostafa, Associate Professor at the American University in Cairo; Catherine Slessor, Editor of The Architectural Review and Per Arnold Andersen of The VELUX Group....

Registration is now open. Students must register before 3 March 2014 and the final deadline for submission of entries is 2 May 2014.
