Archiprix presents the best graduation projects architecture, urban design, interior- and landscape architecture. The graduation projects present lucid solutions for contemporary tasks. They have been carefully selected by the universities as their best graduation projects.
The predictive power of the graduation project
Each edition of Archiprix, this one included, presents a fascinating new collection of final year work. These are projects the jury invariably admits to being impressed by in terms of their diversity and in many cases their quality but most of all in terms of the drive and optimism of their designers. Since a graduation project is generally the springboard to the world of professional practice I for one am always curious as to what these Archiprix participants are destined to contribute to that world. History has taught us that many have already made an impression with outstanding work, in all the represented disciplines.
Well, looking back is fine but it’s easily done. It is much more interesting to discover the potential of the talent we are presenting in this exhibition and encourage it. The best way to encourage such potential is to pick a graduation project that appeals and commission a work from its designer. And the best way to start down this road is to get inspired by the excellent final year work in this exhibition and reflect on the enormous pleasure it can mean for the future!
