Deadline for submitting projects for student architecture award

The International VELUX Award for Students of Architecture takes place every second year and is open to students from all over the world.

It challenges students of architecture to explore the theme of sunlight and daylight in its widest sense to create a deeper understanding of this specific and everrelevant source of light and energy.

With the Award, VELUX wants to pay tribute to daylight and to strengthen the role of daylight in building design according to the company’s vision of promoting daylight, fresh air and quality of life. The Award seeks to foster new thinking in regard to how daylight, fresh air and quality of life can be realized through design to provide insight into the evolution of ideas and potential trends in relation to the development of VELUX products and solutions.

The International VELUX Award took place for the first time in 2004 and the interest in the Award has grown significantly since then. In 2006, the number of submissions more than doubled compared to 2004.
