YTAA 2016

The Young Talent Architecture Award (YTAA) joins the prestigious European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture: the Mies van der Rohe Award and the Emerging Architect Special Mention. With the addition of the YTAA, this trio of biennial awards from the Fundació Mies van der Rohe and the European Union’s Creative Europe program recognizes the best in European architecture at each stage in an architect’s career. By recognizing the best graduation projects of recent graduates in programs of architecture, landscape architecture and urban design, the YTAA will become an important stepping-stone for young architects – some of them future Emerging Architects and EU-Mies Award winners!

World-Architects’ support of the YTAA extends the platform’s goal of highlighting the best in contemporary architecture to include a new generation of architects: those just out of school and embarking on their careers. By profiling the nominees, the winners, and their projects on World-Architects, young architects will have a place to promote their work and make themselves known to a wider audience.
