The winners of The Architecture Drawing Prize 2023 have been announced as part of the upcoming World Architecture Festival in Singapore.
Three drawings were selected in the digital, hand-drawn, and hybrid categories as part of the Prize’s seventh edition, which this year attracted a record number of 250 submissions from around the world.
The overall winner will be announced at Sir John Soane’s Museum in London on January 29, 2024. The museum will exhibit both the winning and shortlisted drawings from January 31st through March 3rd.
Digital Winner: The Archatographic Map of the Incomplete Landscape on Pedra Branca by Eugene Tan
Jurors Ben Langlands and Nikki Bell describe: “This beautiful, skilful, and complex drawing expands the usual range of representational possibilities offered by maps. Through this drawing, Pedra Branca, a tiny outlying island of the archipelago becomes a signifier for the limited land supply of Singapore, and its fragile ecology within the complex geo-political environment of the South China Sea."
Hybrid Winner: (Re)membering the See Monster by Eldry John Infante
The Head of Exhibitions at Sir John Soane’s Museum, Louise Stewart, said: “We were impressed by this skilful and detailed drawing which has been digitally manipulated to create a very dynamic and varied composition. One of the drawing’s particular strengths is the way in which it uses a variety of visual languages, all of which convey information about how buildings work.”
Hand-drawn Winner: Grundtvig by Ben Johnson
Make Architects founder Ken Shuttleworth describes: “As a jury, we are inspired by Ben Johnson’s work and the way he has created a compelling art form from hand-drawings of buildings. The execution of the Grundtvig Church drawing is so controlled and precise that it becomes a meaningful expression of how Ben experiences architecture.”
