Organized by Archiprix

The Archiprix foundation is a cooperation of all Dutch schools teaching architecture, urban design and landscape architecture at master level in Delft, Eindhoven, Wageningen, Amsterdam, Arnhem, Groningen, Maastricht, Rotterdam and Tilburg.

Archiprix organizes both the Archiprix Netherlands and Archiprix International. With the presentation of the best graduation work Archiprix introduces the most talented young architects, urban designers and landscape architects on a national and an international level and it presents their inspiring graduation projects to a wide international public.

The basic setup of Archiprix is straightforward: Archiprix invites all Master’s Degree programmes in the field of architecture, urban planning and landscape architecture to select their best graduation project and to submit it the Archiprix organization. This setup enables Archiprix to give a picture of the state of the art of design education. In contrast to most other competitions, Archiprix does not impose or demand any theme-oriented work. It simply presents the plans that the educational programmes have selected and thus gives an unparalleled insight into the themes in which the programmes are engaged. Archiprix subsequently presents this top-class graduation work to a wide public by means of exhibitions, books, films and internet. Although this formula may be simple, Archiprix does have a stimulating effect on many fronts. First of all, it functions as a launching pad for novice but talented designers. After all, all participants have been selected by their educational institution as the best graduates and that is widely acknowledged as proof of their design talent. As a consequence, they receive well-earned support at their entrance into professional practice. Moreover, the excellent graduation work receives the exposure it deserves: a broad spread of inspiring solutions to current, future and imaginary assignments are placed under the spotlights. Designers, policy-makers, curators can draw from a rich source of ideas. In addition, Archiprix allows the programmes the opportunity to present themselves with their best graduation work on a national and global platform.

Archiprix is supported by the Creative Industries Fund NL and Hunter Douglas.
