YTAA – Ein Architekturpreis für junge Talente_

Der neu ins Leben gerufene «Young Talent Architecture Award» (YTAA) zeichnet frische Absolventinnen und Absolventen aus den Bereichen Architektur, Stadtplanung und Landschaftsarchitektur aus.

Organisiert wird der YTAA von der Mies-van-der-Rohe-Stiftung in Zusammenarbeit mit World-Architects und Vectorworks. Anders als beim Vater-Preis, dem Mies-van-der-Rohe-Preis, der sich nur an Architektinnen und Architekten der EU richtet, können sich für den YTAA auch Schulen aus der Schweiz bewerben. Unserem Mitwirken sei Dank.

Fachhochschulen und Universitäten schlagen dann Abschlussarbeiten ihrer Absolventen für den Preis vor – die Anzahl der Einreichungen ist dann abhängig von der Grösse der Schule. Die Anmeldefrist dauert bis Juni. Auf der YTAA-Website gibt es weitere Informationen zum Preis sowie die Anmeldeunterlagen.

What is it about?
The Young Talent Architecture Award (YTAA) aims to support the talent of recently graduated Architects, Urban Planners and Landscape Architects who will be responsible for transforming our environment in the future. YTAA has emerged from curiosity about and interest in the initial stages in these students’ development and a desire to support their talent as they enter into the professional world.
YTAA Process
Who & How?
In this first edition the nominated graduation projects must be from the 2015-2016 academic year and the Schools (architecture, urban planning and landscape architecture) must be from Europe. In later editions the territorial span may grow and the participation of other institutions will be extended.
Schools will nominate Graduation Projects that will participate in each edition of the YTAA through an internal selection process.
Three winners will be chosen by an international Jury from among nine Finalists, and a group of Shortlisted works will also be selected in order to illustrate different ways of working, designing and communicating.
YTAA Award
Why participate?
All nominated designs will be published online and will become part of the Archive of the YTAA as recognition to their authors and the Schools. The three Winners will be supported in the creation of a network with the architects and critics involved in the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award (the EUMiesAward). They will also receive 5.000€ each, a profile in World Architects, a Vectorworks license, their designs will be exhibited at the EUMiesAward and they will receive a diploma.
Finalists and Shortlisted will also be awarded and acknowledged and the Schools will receive special recognition.
YTAA is organised by the Fundació Mies van der Rohe with the support of the European Union programme Creative Europe and the sponsorship of World Architects and Vectorworks.Fundació Mies van der Rohe
“A platform to inspire the world through good architecture.” In 1983 the Mies van der Rohe Foundation was created with the aim of reconstructing the Germany Pavilion that Ludwig Mies van der Rohe created for the 1929 International Exhibition. The building that can be seen now was inaugurated in 1986, coinciding with the Centenary of the birth of the architect, and it is a true reproduction that was erected in the same location as the original. The works were commissioned to architects Cristian Cirici, Fernando Ramos and Ignasi de Solà-Morales.Creative Europe

These sectors play a big role in the European economy and help generate growth and jobs. Creative Europe provides €1.46 billion over seven years to strengthen Europe’s cultural and creative sectors.

Vectorworks cares about design. Since 1985, we have served the architecture, landscape, and entertainment industries, drawing inspiration from the world around us and encouraging the more than half a million designers who use our software to create experiences that transform the world.
