Welcome to the
2017 WAS awards
If you are or have been enrolled as an architecture student during 2017 we are glad to see you here.
We are sure you’ll have a bunch of great projects you’ve worked on during the last year and we want to see your best!
The WAS awards are FREE to join and will not only give you the opportunity to win some really cool prizes for work you’ve already done but they will also allow you to see where you stand not only against your classmates but also against other students from other schools in other places, some of which will have very different points of views and approaches to architecture than yours.
The WAS awards are a place to share, win, learn and keep growing as an architect. Welcome to the WikiArquitectua Student Awards 2017!
Not all architecture
is the same
We know not all architecture is the same, and since you can’t compare apples with oranges the projects submitted to the WAS awards will compete in three different categories
The housing award will evaluate single homes projects or reduced complexes of individual houses
The residential award will evaluate apartment buildings and other forms of multi-family housing
Public and private projects including; museums, libraries, sport complexes and others
Each student is allowed to submit their best work to each of the three categories but can only submit one project per category
We are talking

This is what you can expect from the WAS awards jury
No project is less important than the other. Therefore the jury will go through every single project equally
There will be no time limit for the jury to spend on a single project. The whole selection process will take weeks if that’s what it takes!
The jury will provide personal feedback for each project, giving you meaningful insight on which were the keys of your project
Most architecture competitions and awards for students pick their winners in just a few hours after the jury receives a handful of shortlisted projects. That’s what happens when you get some “star architect” in the jury… they are busy people and they just don’t have the time to look at every single project or actually spend significant time on any of them.
At WikiArquitectura we believe that’s neither fair nor the best learning experience and that’s why we’ve decided to replace those “star architects” with a devoted selection of our own team with decades of combined experience in professional architecture, research and teaching.
