The International VELUX Award wants to encourage and challenge students of architecture to explore the theme of daylight - and to create a deeper understanding of this specific and ever-relevant source of energy, light and life.

The award encourages projects that celebrate the privilege of being a student with curiosity and with the willingness to think “out of the box” – as well as consider the social, sociological and environmental dimension of light.

The jury

All award entries for the International VELUX Award 2016 will be reviewed by an international jury. The jury will be comprised of internationally renowned architects, including representatives from UIA, and will represent different cultural backgrounds, nationalities, and approaches to architecture. The jury members for the International VELUX Award 2016 will be announced in January.
