COPENHAGEN, February 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
1 March marks the final day of registration for the International VELUX Award 2012 for Students of Architecture.
The award theme is "Light of Tomorrow" and encourages students of architecture to explore the theme of daylight in its widest sense. The award seeks to challenge the future of daylight in the built environment with an open-minded and experimental approach, and thereby seeks to widen the boundaries of daylight in architecture, including aesthetics, functionality, sustainability, and the interaction between buildings and environment.
Registration closes 1 March and projects must be submitted before 7 May. Students need to register to be able to submit their projects. All projects will be evaluated in June by a jury comprised by Alvaro Siza (Portugal), Brigitte Shim (Canada), Bijoy Jain (India), Peter Stutchbury (Australia) and Per Arnold Andersen (Denmark).
The winners of the International VELUX Award 2012 for Students of Architecture will be announced and celebrated at an award ceremony in October 2012. The VELUX Award 2012 carries a prize fund of 30,000 EUR.
