The Global Architecture Graduate Awards

The Architectural Review is launching the Global Architecture Graduate Awards to celebrate the achievements of the world’s finest architecture graduates. The awards seek to identify projects with a critical position that advances the role of architecture in an increasingly fractured yet globalised world

The Prize

The winner will receive a £2500 cash prize and have his or her project published in a special edition of the AR in October.
A group of up to 10 shortlisted students will receive a year’s subscription to the AR and will also have their work featured in the October issue.

Architectural Criteria

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.

How to submit your work

Please submit projects using the online submission form. Each student can submit one project. This must be sent in a single pdf document; it can contain up to five images, presented in a landscape format, ready for projection. An accompanying text of 300 words (maximum) elaborating on both the project and its contribution to international architectural discourse should also be submitted in Word format. Please include all your contact details (email, address and phone number) with your entry. An example PDF submission is available here. The Awards are free to enter.


All entries must be received by midnight, 17 August, 2012.


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 recieve you may have to wait a few days for a reply.

Final selection

The jury will review the short-listed projects during the first week of September. The winner will be notified thereafter. Work submitted to the Awards programme must have been executed during your final year of architecture school. Where to submit your work.
