Young Visionary Architecture Competition 2021

Young Visionary Architecture Competition 2021 was inspired based on the influential Architect Le Corbusier.

Le Corbusier was a visionary architect whose designs combined functionalism with bold sculptural expressionism. He belonged to the first generation of the International school of architecture.

This competition is international and involves unbuilt projects that were designed by students and graduates from all over the world during their career, and can be expressed as university projects, personal projects or graduation projects.

In other terms, YVAC 2021 is a “Designed Project’s Competition” where students and undergraduates submit their ideal Personal, University or Graduation project based on 3 competition categories and 18 sub-categories.

Therefore, we invite futuristic mindsets in the Architecture/Design field to take part in our Competition and in sequence showcase their hidden talents, spotlight their individual/team projects, and gain a global-scale recognition.

The competition serves to boost young students and recent graduates only.
