Young Talent Architecture Award 2016

The Young Talent Architecture Award (YTAA) aims to support the talent of recently graduated Architects, Urban Planners and Landscape Architects who will be responsible for transforming our environment in the future. YTAA has emerged from curiosity about and interest in the initial stages in these students' development and a desire to support their talent as they enter into the professional world.

YTAA Process

Who & How?

In this first edition the nominated graduation projects must be from the 2015-2016 academic year and the Schools (architecture, urban planning and landscape architecture) must be from Europe. In later editions the territorial span may grow and the participation of other institutions will be extended.

Schools will nominate Graduation Projects that will participate in each edition of the YTAA through an internal selection process.

Three winners will be chosen by an international Jury from among nine Finalists, and a group of Shortlisted works will also be selected in order to illustrate different ways of working, designing and communicating.
