Philosophy of the YTAP
The YTAP aims to support young talents to build an international career. It also acknowledges the universities committed to architectural quality as a driving force for the European economy and its culture.
The winning projects will be distinguished for their excellence, authenticity and innovative nature, as well as their sustainable approach.
The winners will receive a financial reward and will become part of the network of awarded architects of the Prize. Moreover, they will have the opportunity to travel, visit and experience the best examples of architecture.
An international jury will select the three best master degree projects from Europe. The selection will be made from the proposals submitted by about 50 accredited schools and universities in Europe, expanding in future editions to other geographical areas.
The list of schools and universities will be public on January 2016. The 2016 Prize is open to master degree projects from the current academic year.
Organizer: Creative Europe and Mies van der Rohe Foundation.
