Far emergere nuove ricerche nate in ambito universitario, dare visibilità ai lavori degli studenti e incoraggiarli a partecipare al dibattito sull'architettura. Con questi obiettivi viene lanciata la sesta edizione del premio IS ARCH.
The sixth edition of the IS ARCH awards for architecture students is open. The IS ARCH Awards are international awards targeting students of architecture. The aim is to provide a platform for debate surrounding the architecture solutions that students contribute within the framework of their university studies.
The competition aims to boost avant-garde trends and to recognize new research that emerges from universities. It also provides students' work with an opportunity for international projection that extends beyond the traditional relationship between students and their lecturers. A further objective of the IS ARCH Awards is to encourage young people to join the debate on architecture, contributing with their unique vision and opinions.
The documents should consist of academic projects carried out at university and mounted horizontally on a single DIN A1 panel. The name of the project must be stated correctly in the bottom right-hand corner of the panel. All proposals must be anonymous and the text which appears on it in English. The authors may also include all information they consider necessary in order to fully understand the project: planes, sections, perspectives, photos of the model, sketches and specifications, etc.
The competition is opened to all students of architecture and young architects that have graduated within the last 3 years prior to the date of sending in the necessary documents. Each participant or team participants may submit as many projects as they wish, regardless of their nature, programme and budget.
