The International VELUX Award 2014 for Students of Architecture wants to encourage and challenge students of architecture to explore the theme of daylight in its widest sense – and to create a deeper understanding of this specific and ever-relevant source of energy and light.

The award seeks to challenge the future of daylight in the built environment with an open-minded and experimental approach, and to widen the boundaries of daylight in architecture, including aesthetics, functionality, sustainability, and the interaction between buildings and environment.

“Light of Tomorrow” is the overall theme of the award that celebrates and promotes excellence in completed study works from students all over the world.

For more information about the award, and to register please visit Deadline for registration is 3 March 2014.
