Drawing of the Year


The Aarhus School of Architecture, schmidt hammer lassen architects, VOLA and The Danish Arts Foundation proudly announce a joint venture ‘Drawing of the Year 2014’.

We invite entries from all architectural students in the form of drawings that inspire, communicate and engage. The internationally acclaimed jury will be looking to award drawings that express the architect’s aesthetic and conceptual approach as a dialogue with – and through – the medium of drawing.

Drawing is a media production and a dissemination of thoughts and dreams. The audience should be invited to wonder at, be moved by and be involved in drawing as a recognition and discussion of tomorrow’s architecture. The theme of the competition is: ”Transformation Through Architecture” – focusing on architecture’s ambition to take an active part in social development.

The competition is seen as an opportunity to celebrate the architect’s oldest tool as a relevant media for communicating his craft – and for demonstrating the potential of discussing and developing architectural ideas laid down on paper through the art of drawing. Drawings will be exhibited at the Aarhus School of Architecture, and the winners announced, in December 2014. (1st prize: 5000 Euro. 2nd prize 2000 Euro. 3rd prize 1000). In the spring of 2015, the exhibition will be shown at schools of architecture worldwide.

Jury: Torben Nielsen (Rector, Aarhus School of Architecture); Morten Schmidt (schmidt hammer lassen architects); Laura Allen (Bartlett School of Architecture); Jenny B. Osuldsen (Snøhetta).
