The Young Talent Architecture Award (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. The current edition is also the first YTAA. It will be a survey of the architecture degree projects of the 2015-2016 academic year and will be awarded in October 2016. In this first edition the nominated Graduation Projects must be from the 2015-2016 academic year 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.
All nominated designs will be published online and will become part of the Archive of the YTAA as recognition to their authors and the Schools. The three Winners will be supported in the creation of a network with the architects and critics involved in the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award (the EUMiesAward). They will also receive 5.000€ each, a profile in World Architects, a Vectorworks license, their designs will be exhibited at the EUMiesAward and they will receive a diploma.
