Description
The IS ARCH Awards are international awards targeting students of architecture. The aim is to provide a platform for debate surrounding the architecture solutions students contribute within the framework of their university studies. The competition aims to boost avant-garde trends and to recognize and draw attention to the new research trends that emerge from universities. It also provides students’ work with an opportunity for international projection that extends beyond the traditional relationship between students and their lecturers. The IS ARCH Awards require an insight and collaboration between the various teaching and learning methodologies for architecture adopted by participating universities. This cooperation creates a favorable environment for open reflection and comment, which is crucial in order to move forward and progress in architectural knowledge and know-how. A further objective of the IS ARCH Awards is to encourage young people to join the debate on architecture, contributing their unique vision and opinions. The philosophy behind the IS ARCH Awards is to support the creativity of young and emerging talent and to boost debate between the various students that take part in this initiative. By promoting this platform, the IS ARCH Awards intend to provide students – the architects of the future -with a gateway to the professional and corporate world.
