28.10.2016 - YTAA Young Talent Architecture Award 2016
Fundació Mies van der Rohe
The Young Talent Architecture Award (YTAA) is organized by the Fundació Mies van der Rohe with the support of Creative Europe as an extension of the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award.
By bringing together the most talented graduated architects and the best architecture firms, the Winners of the YTAA will have the chance to find comprehensive strategies enhancing synergies and complementarities with the firms and work with the studio of their choice.
The 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.
In this first edition (YTAA 2016) the nominated Graduation Projects must be from the 2015-2016 academic year (presented between August 2015 and July 2016) 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 encouraged.
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.
