Since 2001 Archiprix International encourages and brings together a new generation of the world's best architects, urban designers and landscape architects with their best graduation projects. All university-level training colleges around the world are invited to take part by selecting and submitting their best graduation project. Archiprix International forms the largest presentation of graduation work and offers unrivalled insight into current trends in design education globally and architecture generally.
The initiative reflects rapid international developments in the design disciplines. Recent decades have seen an explosive growth in the scale of international contact, resulting in lively exchanges world-wide. Increasing numbers of designers work on commissions abroad, professional journals are published on an international scale, and training colleges are becoming more and more international in their orientation. Archiprix International forms an expanding international platform for training colleges and newly graduated, talented designers. It spotlights international trends in architecture, urban design and landscape architecture and brings designers together.
Every year Archiprix International nominates eminent global architects to review the projects and judge the best projects. An independent jury rewards the very best submissions with the Hunter Douglas Awards.
The jury for Archprix 2017 comprising of Bimal Patel (India), Frida Escobedo (Mexico), Yttje Feddes (Netherlands), Marina Tabassum (Bangladesh), and Steven Smith (England) reviewed all submitted projects.
