Calling all students, participate in the 2022 International VELUX Award competition. Registration closes April 1, 2022
Tuesday, Mar 15, 2022
Every second year the VELUX Group invites the students of architecture to participate in the International VELUX Award competition on the theme “Light of Tomorrow. Since the launch in 2004, more than 10,000 students from more than 800 schools from all regions of the world have participated in the competition.
The competition invites students to explore the role of daylight in architecture. The aim is to encourage and challenge students of architecture, and to create a deeper understanding of daylight as an ever-relevant source of energy, light, and life.
For the celebratory 10th edition in 2022, the students will develop their projects in one of the two categories: ‘Daylight in buildings’ or ‘Daylight investigations.’ In order to participate in the competition, students need to register until April 1, 2022. Registration is free, and it only requires an e-mail address. After registering, the next steps are gathering the team, connecting with the teacher, and start developing the daylight project. Register for the competition here.
Students’ projects will be evaluated by the exciting jury of a truly global character and recognition: John Ronan (US), Fuensanta Nieto (ES), Martin Løkke (DK), Rainer Hofmann (DE) and Anupama Kundoo (IN).
The jury will meet in July 2022, to evaluate the submitted projects and choose 10 regional winners from each of the five UIA member regions 1) Western Europe, 2) Eastern Europe and the Middle East, 3) the Americas, 4) Asia+ Oceania and 5) Africa. The selected regional winners will be invited to the World Architecture Festival 2022 where they will present their projects to the jury in front of a live audience.
The International VELUX Award competition is part of the Daylight & Architecture community initiated by the VELUX Group. Rounding up unique content created by architects, journalists, and researchers, the website daylightandarchitecture.com brings a rich library of filmed lectures, daylight talks, and articles.
The content is especially valuable for students of architecture joining the International VELUX Award competition, for finding inspiration and expanding their understanding of the importance of daylight for the life on Earth.
