The Architecture Drawing Prize

Langlands & Bell invited to join judging panel – Meet the Judges.

In partnership with Make Architects and Sir John Soane’s MuseumWorld Architecture Festival (WAF) announces the call for entries for the sixth edition of The Architecture Drawing Prize, sponsored by Iris Ceramica Group. Launched in 2017, the Prize was established to celebrate and showcase the art and skill of architectural drawing.

In the spirit of work by great architects of the past, from Palladio and John Soane to Le Corbusier and Cedric Price, The Architecture Drawing Prize is a platform for reflecting and exploring how drawing continues to advance the art of architecture today. It embraces the creative use of digital tools and digitally produced renderings, while recognising the enduring importance of hand drawing.

WAF invites entries of all types and forms, from conceptual to technical or construction drawings, cutaways or perspective views, and anything in between. Entries are welcomed from architects, designers and students from around the world in the following categories: Hand-drawn, Digital, and Hybrid (combining the two).

Extended entry deadline: 23 September 2022

Entrants are invited to submit work in three categories: hand-drawn, digital and hybrid. Winners will be selected in each category as well as an overall winner.

The winning and commended entries will go on display in a dedicated exhibition at Sir John Soane’s Museum in London from February – May 2023. The winners will also receive delegate passes for the World Architecture Festival in Lisbon in December 2022 where their drawings will be on display and they will be invited to present to a discussion panel.
