candidature entro il 15 marzo 2014

The UIA Architecture and children work programme is launching the second edition of its Golden Cube awards, developed to recognise and promote individuals and organisations that help children and adolescents to better understand architecture. Candidates are invited to submit their projects, activities or productions developed with the goal of explaining architecture and the built environment design processes to children or youth.

The Awards will honour people and organizations that help children and young people to understand architecture. Entrants will be invited to submit entries describing activities or products designed to teach children and young people, from pre-school up to and including the age of 18, to understand architectural design and the processes by which our environment is formed.

The Awards will be presented in four award categories:

  • 1. Schools (directors, teachers, students)
  • 2. Institutions (organisations, institutions, museums ...)
  • 3. Written Media (books, magazines, non audio-visual educational tools)
  • 4. Audio-visual Media (films, audio-visual educational material, web sites ...)

The UIA Architecture & Children Golden Cubes Awards process is not a ‘competition' for which Entrants are expected to produce new projects. Instead they are invited to present submissions relating to an activity, which is currently active, or to a product produced, or an event which has taken place, at any time between September 2011 and the submission deadline of 15th March 2014.

The Award Process has two phases: National and International
In the first phase each UIA National Member Section participating in the Award will organise a selection process at National level and nominate one entry for submission for the International Awards. In the second phase the International Jury will evaluate the Nominated Entries and select one UIA Architecture & Children Golden Cubes Award in each category.

The Awards will be presented and the winning and selected entries exhibited at the 25th UIA Congress in Durban / South Africa, August 2014.
