International VELUX Awards & World Architecture Festival 2018

28 Nov - 30 Nov Amsterdam

The International VELUX Awards (IVA) is a biennial competition for architecture students officially endorsed by the UIA since 2004. The 2018 edition challenged students from all over the world to work with daylight as an ever relevant source of light, life and joy. Over 600 student teams from 58 different countries submitted projects in two categories: Daylight Investigations and Daylight in Buildings.

The international jury, which met in Copenhagen, Denmark in June 2018, selected nine regional winners. The nine finalists have been invited to Amsterdam, The Netherlands from 28-30 November to present their projects before the international jury on the occasion of the World Architecture Festival. 

UIA Past President Vassilis Sgoutas will represent UIA during the final presentations and the award ceremony.
