The International VELUX Award for students of architecture is a competition that wants to encourage and challenge students to explore the theme of daylight - and to create a deeper understanding of this 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 daylight.

The jury

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