Every two years the Archiprix International presents the world's best graduation projects in the field of architecture, urban design and landscape architecture. Architectural schools and universities from the whole world are invited to participate by selecting and submitting their best theses.
The Archiprix International represents the largest presentation of graduate works on a worldwide basis and provides insight into current trends in design, education and architecture in general.
The initiative reflects rapid changes in the international events in design disciplines. In the last decade an explosive growth in the scale of international contacts is visible, resulting in the expansion of world-wide around the world. Radius of work of a growing number of designers has spread abroad, professional journals are published on a wider international stage and college programs are becoming more and more internationally oriented. Archiprix reflects global trends in architecture, urban planning and landscape architecture and contributes to better contact and gathering of designers.
As part of this initiative Archiprix Balkans was formed, which aims to form and stimulate exchange of knowledge between young architects in the Balkans. The current and closely related topics in this region should also strengthen professional discussion and aid better understanding of these issues.
10 selected works will participate in this exhibition with the idea that the best work is declared in the upcoming days of architecture organized by ORIS 2017.
This exhibition displays the winning works from Ahmedabad 2017 along with selected works from Archiprix Balkans.
Archiprix International is an initiative of the Archiprix Foundation, which is a nonprofit organization that reserves all rights (including intellectual property rights) at the Archiprix International. This Foundation was enabled by the cooperation of renowned schools of architectural education, urban design and landscape architecture from Delft, Eindhoven, Wageningen, Amsterdam, Arnhem, Groningen, Maastricht, Rotterdam, Tilburg.
