WASA World Architecture Student Award 2022

The World Architecture Student Awards is one of the largest architecture student competitions in the world, held mainly in Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States. The World Architecture Student Awards is one of the world's largest competitions for architecture students, held primarily in Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The competition is designed to evaluate the overall ability of architecture students, and is based on design projects submitted at architectural institutions (universities, junior colleges, vocational schools, and graduate schools), competitions, and graduation designs. It is a competition to evaluate the overall ability of architecture students. The competition is based on a complex of statistics, typology, and architectural design theory, and the works are quantified and judged fairly based on a comprehensive evaluation. (Executive Committee)

These are the students who participate in the program

For all submitted designs, we will issue a certificate that provides a detailed analysis of the architectural designer's abilities and quantitative advice on what has been done well and what has not been done well. We will also award certificates for particularly outstanding work on various evaluation axes. This is not an arbitrary and highly abstract judging process, but rather an indication of the designer's ability and an expectation for the future development and success of architecture students. We aim to create a competition that is meaningful to everyone, regardless of the type of work, grade level, or country. (Executive Committee Chairman: Yusuke Shimizu)
