Call for Participants: UIA/The 12th International Young Architects’ Award and Exhibition

The Chamber of Architects of Turkey Antalya Branch has launched the 12th International Young Architects’ Award and Exhibition with the support of the UIAThis year’s edition of the Young Architects’ Award and Exhibition asks participants to examine the conceptual question of ''solid-void relations, … a universal problem of architectural design in the context of rapid urbanization throughout the globe.''

Young architects will explore how ''the concentration on closed spaces and masses affects the idea of ‘void’ in the historical memory of architecture?''

Participants are requested to select a particular context for developing design ideas concerning ''the interpretation of the urban void for street library'' while keeping in mind the concept of “void.” Focusing on contemporary evolutions of the ''library,'' architects will investigate the implications of the traditional building type ''in our age where the ways of reading and acquiring knowledge are transforming rapidly.'' The objective of the competition is to discuss “constructive ideas of library along with the interpretation of urban void.''

The annual single stage ideas awards programme is open to young architects worldwide and is conducted in accordance with the UIA-UNESCO regulations.

Participants must be qualified architects registered with the national association of architects in their own country and born after 1977. Teams are welcome, and each team member must also fulfill the aforementioned conditions. Participation is free of charge. The official languages of the competition are Turkish and English.
