04.07.2012 To whom it may concern, Arquideas wants to inform you about some modifications in the brief of Arquideas Grant 2012.

In order to do not limit the possibilities of participation, Arquideas has done two changes in the brief:

1- Architecture students of any year and young architects (max. 5 years from graduation) can take part in the Arquideas Grant 2012

2- Separate the practices in the architecture office to broaden the geographical scope and the possibilities to set the prize aside for other educational activities.


Arquideas wants to move forward the integration of students and young architects into labour activity. The arquideas grant competition is, consequently, a means to put the knowledge gained by students and young architects during their studies in the different architecture schools into practice, continuing their education and learning how great professional architecture offices work.

The arquideas grant competition will award the winner with an economic monthly prize given by Arquideas and professional practices in any of our partner architecture offices that can be chosen by the winner, during six months period.
