Award celebrates innovation in architecture education

The International Union of Architects (UIA) has announced a new award, open to architecture faculties around the world, that aims to celebrate innovative approaches to architecture education.

Entry to the UIA Award for Innovation in Architectural Education is open to schools that offer an architecture degree that has been established for at least 10 years.

“Architectural education in the 21st century demands creativity and innovation; research and investigation; collaboration and civic engagement; environmental awareness and technical competence,” state the submission criteria. “Submissions for this award must therefore demonstrate excellence in pedagogical practice based on evidence of pedagogical innovation and enhanced learning outcomes.”

Programs that teach sustainable principles as an intrinsic part of the architectural curriculum, as well as programs with a cross-disciplinary focus, will be looked upon favourably.

The UIA is an international representative body for architects. The organization manages a number of international events, conferences and awards, as well as international design competitions for significant buildings, including the competition for the Sydney Opera House that was won by Jørn Utzon.

Submissions to the award close on 1 April 2020. The award will be announced at the UIA World Congress in Rio de Janeiro on 19 July 2020.
