Aarhus School of Architecture proudly announces the sixth joint venture competition: Drawing of the Year 2018. We invite architecture students from all over the world and call for drawings that demonstrate their ability to dream and create drawings that inspire for change.
This year’s bold theme is Shaping new realities.
Shaping new realities
The world is facing serious challenges: climate, war, migration, and savage algorithms, to mention a few. How should architects respond to these? How can architects’ ability to dream and draw innovative solutions to challenges that are general and significant to all of us contribute to radical solutions?
We invite bold, inspiring, provocative and innovative proposals for shaping new realities. On all scales and in all environments, from the smallest structure to complex facilities; from rural outskirts to suburban environments; from nature to expanding megacities. From Earth to Mars.
We accept drawings from students at architecture schools all over the world. The internationally acclaimed jury will award digitally produced drawings that are Shaping New Realities and engage with architecture in an artistic way.
The aim of the competition
Is to continuously explore new tendencies in architecture through architectural drawing and to challenge the use of new techniques and mixed media.
