The International VELUX Award is a competition for students of architecture that runs every second year. We challenge students from all over the world to work with daylight as an ever relevant source of light, life and joy. The award is one of the most important global student competitions of its kind.
Submission is now closed. The jury will review the projects in July and the regional winners will be announced in August.
The Light of La Rochelle
A portrait of the Light of La Rochelle is a short film that was captured and presented by the winners of International VELUX Award 2010. It is an exploration of the city through a series of daylight moments.
The film was captured by 23 students with different nationalities and cultural backgrounds, who were the winners and honourable mentions from the International VELUX Award 2010, and based on a concept by Louise Grønlund (winner, IVA2006) and Nanet Mathiasen who also supervised the filmmaking.
