ArchDaily, Strelka Institute, and Strelka KB announce the second edition of their jointly curated award and are accepting applications from the territories of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Estonia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan. Submit your project by August 8.
More than ever, in the wake of the current pandemic, we need architecture that emphasizes social infrastructure, community building, health, and wellbeing. As the planetary environmental crisis continues to worsen, it is becoming ever more crucial to enact responsible design solutions and frameworks.
We welcome completed projects that show commitment to these qualities, use sustainable materials, and have socially responsible agendas. We aim to spotlight emerging architects and offices who help make their cities and communities resilient in the face of looming crises. The 2019 edition of the award brought together a great selection of contemporary architecture and we look forward to showcasing more new names and their outstanding projects this time around.
WHO CAN APPLY?
If your office is located in one of the aforementioned countries you can submit any project: housing, shopping malls, theaters, places of worship, public spaces, etc. We also accept completed interior design projects.
Offices that have existed for 10 years or less can submit projects that were completed no earlier than 2016. One office can submit several works.
ArchDaily and Strelka Mag editors will curate and select the best projects. All selected submissions will be published in the Russian and English versions of Strelka Mag and on ArchDaily, reaching a combined audience of millions.
HOW TO APPLY
