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. Registration is open until 1. April 2020 so prepare your project team, connect with your teacher and get onboard!
