This exhibition showcases the winning and commended entries of the fourth Architecture Drawing Prize. The Prize celebrates the significance of drawing as a tool in capturing and communicating architectural ideas.  Entrants submitted work in three categories: hand-drawn, digital and hybrid. This year a special lockdown prize is awarded to a drawing relating to the changes that Covid-19 will bring to architecture. Each drawing is accompanied by an explanation in its maker’s own words.

This exhibition includes content created and curated by the Youth Panel at Sir John Soane's Museum, in response to the exhibition of works from The Architecture Drawing Prize. The Youth Panel is a group of young people aged 15-24 who help the Museum shape the activities, events and opportunities it offers. Youth Panel members have worked in collaboration with entrants to the Architectural Drawing Prize and Soane Museum staff to create an imaginative video intervention, which explores the process behind creating an architectural drawing, with an accompanying soundscape. They have also designed their own response pieces to the works on display and interviewed competition entrants, to discover more about the inspiration behind individual works.

The Architecture Drawing Prize is a collaboration between Make Architects, the World Architecture Festival, and Sir John Soane’s Museum.
