In partnership with Make Architects and the World Architecture Festival (WAF), we’re delighted to share that the call for entries for the sixth edition of The Architecture Drawing Prize is now open.

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 Soane to Le Corbusier and Cedric Price, the Architecture Drawing Prize is a platform for reflecting on 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. 

The Prize 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).

Site(s) of Flux, Roaming Giant by Zachary Higson, winner of the Digital category in the 2021 Prize.

Submissions across the three categories will be evaluated based on their technical skill, originality of approach and ability to convey an architectural idea. Drawings can be entirely speculative or relate to real projects.

This year’s judges are the Soane's Director, Bruce Boucher; artist Pablo Bronstein; Founder of Lily Jencks Studio, Lily Jencks; artists Ben Langlands & Nikki Bell; Iris Ceramica Group CEO, Federica Minozzi; Senior Partner at Foster + Partners, Narinder Sagoo and Founder of Make Architects, Ken Shuttleworth.
