Tournament concept

The World Architectural Student Awards are the world's largest architectural student competitions held mainly in Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States. This is a contest to measure the comprehensive ability of architecture students, targeting design projects, submitted competitions, and graduation designs at educational institutions related to architecture (universities, junior colleges, vocational schools, and graduate schools). A complex of statistics, typology, and architectural design outlines allows us to quantify architectural design works and judge them fairly through comprehensive evaluation. In addition, we analyze the architectural designer's ability in detail for all the design works submitted, and issue a transcript that quantitatively shows what has been done and how well it has been done and provides advice. In addition, particularly excellent works in various evaluation axes will be awarded certificates of merit. This is not an arbitrary and very abstract judging, but rather shows the abilities of the designers and anticipates the future development and success of the architectural students. Everyone is aiming for a meaningful competition regardless of the type of work, grade, or country. (Yusuke Shimizu, chairman of the executive committee)

Periodic health checkup for architecture students

Feedback on all submissions
New precision score evaluation Transcript

​Four items of feedback

The ranking is calculated from an objective point of view, including the professional esquisse of architecture based on past statistics.​We provide multifaceted assistance such as presenting related buildings and related books, consulting suitable competitions and laboratories, and recruiting suitable companies.


We provide accurate advice based on comparative analysis based on the advice of more than 100 architects and past cases. Instead of the subjective advice of the architect, we will objectively esquish where and how to make proposals based on AI statistical data.

Rank calculation

A wide range of ranking calculations can be performed for national rankings and world rankings, from grades to successive rankings, using the scoring technology of the designer's diverse abilities. We will evaluate a wide range of abilities by calculating the ranking by ability from various viewpoints, not by calculating the ranking based on the total score.




A transcript will be issued for each work and sent via Gmail. All submissions receive the same quality of feedback as discussed by different architects. In addition to quantitatively presenting where and how much is not done, it also presents how to brush up. *If the number of applications exceeds 1,000, the issue of transcripts may not keep up, or if only the top works are issued, we may change to online publication. Thank you in advance for your understanding.
