International Ideas Competition for London
International Ideas Competition for Architecture Students and Graduates
The Wilmotte Foundation’s international PrixW competition is calling for entries from architectural students and recent graduates. For the first time since the Competition began, the prestigious PrixW will focus on a UK site. The competition invites entrants to propose a new cultural and events centre at the Tower of London, London’s most visited tourist attraction. Prix W hopes that a site with such a long and illustrious history will fire the imagination of young architects across the world.
The winner will receive €7000, with €5000 and €3000 respectively for the runners up.
The competition will be judged by an international panel and selected entries will be displayed in an exhibition at the Venice Architecture Biennale 2014.
The competition is now open and the deadline for submissions is 4th April. Interested students and architects are advised not to delay entering.
THE SITE IS BY KIND PERMISSION OF HISTORIC ROYAL PALACES (HRP)
