The Architecture & Design category was first introduced at The Undergraduate Awards 2017.
Previously, students with work related to design could submit to the Visual Arts & Design category (now Visual Arts) but there was little opportunity for students of Architecture to submit to The Undergraduate Awards. We introduced this category to celebrate the work of students studying courses such as Architecture, Construction, Environmental Design, Interior Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Design, Product Design etc.
Barry Sheehan from Dublin Institute of Technology, Chair of the Visual Arts & Design 2016 has commented that:
Architecture thrives on competitions, it is how most architects establish themselves in the profession. Winning is habit-forming and entering competitions as early as possible is essential.
Architecture & Design is a portfolio-based category. Entrants can submit up to 10 images and an accompanying statement of between 300 and 1,500 words explaining their work. Submissions to this category do not need an abstract.
