Archiprix Internation invites biennially all schools worldwide in architecture, urbanism and landscape architecture to select their best graduation project.

According to the international jury who selected the winners:

“The winning projects are related to the DNA of recognizable architects or architectural styles, but they are another evolutionary step beyond that DNA, and stand out because of the authentic voice of the individual designers and the clear positions they take. They are all very powerful projects and go beyond style. What they have in common is poetics.”
