​   What is the World Architecture Student Award    

The World Architecture Student Award is the world's largest architecture student competition held mainly in Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States. This contest aims at the comprehensive ability of architectural students to carry out design subject works, submitted competitions, graduation design works, etc. that were undertaken by educational institutions related to architecture (universities, junior colleges, vocational schools, graduate schools). With the complex of statistics, typology and an introduction to architectural design, architectural design works can be quantified and judged fairly by comprehensive evaluation. In addition, we will issue a transcript that analyzes the abilities of the architectural designer in detail for all the submitted design works, quantitatively shows where and how much is done, and gives advice. In addition, a certificate will be awarded to works that are particularly excellent in various evaluation axes. This is not an arbitrary and very abstract examination, but shows the ability of the designer and hopes for the future development and success of architectural students. We are aiming for a meaningful competition for everyone regardless of the type of work, grade, or country. (Executive Committee Chair Yusuke Shimizu)

[Required 1]. Entry period: June 1st-August 1st 23:59 every year

  ​Examination criteria   

At present, it is clear that a wide variety of architectural concepts, building types, methods, construction methods, forms, and spatial possibilities are shown by architectural history and design theory, and the chaotic situation continues. It is indispensable to respect individuality in the final work that an architectural student should aim for, but it may be inclined to the international modernist thinking of design works that show new possibilities such as proposals of methods and forms born from methods. And not just leaning towards the bana-carry organic thoughts of responding to local contacts, rather than leaning towards the functionalist thoughts of modern building types, just diverse spaces and I'm not leaning towards the modern way of thinking about landscapes. In other words, while solving social problems, it has a theme (unique and unique proposal) for all of the design components of the site, usage, method, form, and space, and has a reality that can be realized for all. Isn't it the work that should be finally reached by the work in which each design component is organically combined, that is, inevitably and logically interacted with each other? This is a work that takes into account the need for clarity (coined words) for a variety of modern times, and therefore shows the inevitable need for a work with a high degree of perfection.
