In contrast to most other competitions, Archiprix does not impose or demand any theme-oriented work. It simply presents the plans that the educational programmes have selected and thus gives an unparallelled insight into the themes with which the programmes are engaged. Archiprix subsequently presents this top-class graduation work to a wide public by means of exhibitions, books, films and the internet. Archiprix also organises the assessment of the selected graduation plans by an independent jury. Finally, Archiprix stimulates the cooperation between the up-and-coming designers by bringing them into contact with one another via workshops.

This edition of Archiprix International encompassed a breathtaking total of 321 projects designed by the best graduates from all over the world. The exhibition showcases a selection. Winners, nominees and participants favourites are presented in a condensed format of one project per panel. It is fascinating to see the quality of the best graduation work from the past two years, carefully selected by universities that offer courses in architecture, urbanism and landscape architecture. The presented projects leave the reader in no doubt that a new generation of designers is ready and prepared to tackle all manner of contemporary assignments.

About Gallery 3 By You

Talent at Het Nieuwe Instituut

Het Nieuwe Instituut explores the concept of talent and discusses it with designers, makers, curators, policymakers, the education sector and other stakeholders. 

Studio Visits is a series of evenings dedicated to contemporary architectural practice, its challenges and its possibilities. The series invites professionals, students and the broader public to cross the threshold and take a peek into the architect’s workplace.

Het Nieuwe Instituut has instigated research in architecture, design and digital culture since its foundation in 2013, fostering programmes, exhibitions, lectures, archival investigations and publications in the Netherlands and internationally. Through its annual Fellowship programme, Het Nieuwe Instituut’s Research Department acknowledges and gives visibility to research projects offering departures from established modes of thinking. For this iteration, the Open Call for Fellows focuses on the theme Regeneration. New Institutional Practices. Following recent calls on bodily burn-out (2018) and planetary exhaustion (2019), the 2020 programme invites collectives to take current conditions of burn-out and exhaustion as a point of departure to generate forms of collective organisation and action.
