Tomorrow's Leaders.  Building the Future. The Awards aims to promote excellence in architectural design education by rewarding the best university projects in architecture and urban design.

Entries should explain, with the support of sketches and drawings where appropriate, how the design solution addresses the following elements of the practice of architecture for current development trends and issues that will likely become more important in the future (e.g. climate change, resource efficiency, changes in economic activities, changes in ways of doing business, changes in modes of transport): 

-     Innovation in building and urban design

-     Sustainability

-     Use of technology

-     Adaptability

-     Commercial/Cultural identity
