Archiprix International 2013 Moscow the world's best graduation projects in Architecture


In October the jury of the Archiprix International 2013 met at the Moscow Architecture Institute MARHI in Moscow. After two intense days of reviewing Yuri Grigoryan, Susan Herrington, Kristin Jarmund, Hubert Klumpner and Lesley Lokko nominated 25 projects for an award. 

The jury noticed that many graduation projects show a great sense for social issues, and address issues that are very relevant for the profession. Schools worldwide seem to shift the focus from designing icons to relevant new tasks, as for example shown in the increasing number of graduation projects that deals with existing buildings, re-use and transformations. The winners of the Hunter Douglas Awards will be announced at the Award ceremony in the Central House of Artists in Moscow on May 24th 2013.
Every edition the participants are asked to vote for their favourite project. Most of the participants of the Archiprix 2013 selected their favourite projects in the past months. The list of participants favourites publishes below the list of the nominated projects includes the 21 projects with 10 or more votes. The nominees, participants favourites and a wide range of projects that are much appreciated by the participants will be presented in the book Archiprix International 2013, to be published in May 2013.
