Every two years, Archiprix International invites all university-level courses in the field of architecture, urban planning and landscape architecture to select their best graduation projects and to submit these for participation. This book presents a cross-section of the projects, including the nominees and winners chosen by an independent jury, and the favorites chosen by the participants themselves, supplemented by a representative selection that shows the range of designs and the graphical distribution across all continents. In addition, the book contains the jury report as well as biographies of the designers of the nominated projects. A DVD presents the entirety of the projects.
Archiprix International was first organized in Rotterdam, the home base of Archiprix International, in 2001. In 2007, Archiprix International is held in Shanghai, with the College of Architecture and Urban Planning of Tongji University as the main partner. Archiprix International provides a platform for educational courses in architecture, urban planning and landscape architecture, and brings together and supports newly-graduated, talented designers at the start of their career.
