Enter the Global Architecture Graduate Awards 2013

Extended deadline: 12 July. The Global Architecture Graduate Awards celebrate the achievements of the world’s finest architecture graduates. The awards seek to identify projects with a critical position that advance the role of architecture in an increasingly fractured yet globalised world


There are two awards, one for undergraduates and another for postgraduates. The winners will each receive a £2,500 cash prize and have their projects published in a special edition of the AR in October 2013. Shortlisted students will receive a year’s subscription to the AR and will also have their work featured in the October issue. Pictured is Haiwei Xie’s winning entry from the 2012 GAGAs.


Projects can be any programme or scale, and in any location around the world. We are looking for a strong critical position, and this must also be developed into an architectural proposition. The work should engage with its context, while also being relevant to larger architectural discussions. Work produced in academia should not mimic practice, and yet principally we are looking for work that could have a positive effect on architectural production.


Please submit projects by email to stating whether you are entering the undergraduate or postgraduate award in the subject line. Each student can submit one project. This must be sent in a single pdf document and can contain up to 5 image pages. An accompanying text of 300 words (maximum) elaborating on both the project and its contribution to international architectural discourse should also be submitted as the last page of the PDF along with all your contact details (email, address, phone number and architecture school). The Awards are free to enter.

An example pdf explaining the submission guidelines is available here.


All entries must be received by midnight 12 July, 2013.


To enter the Global Archtiecture Graduate Awards you must be an architecture student or have graduated from architecture school in 2013 or 2012.


The jury will review the short-listed projects and the winner will be notified thereafter. Work submitted to the awards programme must have been completed during your final year of your course.


We have put together some answers to frequently asked questions that you may find helpful.


If you have any questions about the awards please get in touch with The Architectural Review on +44 (0)203 033 2740 or email - due to the volume of emails we receive you may have to wait a few days for a reply.
