the VELUX is back with its 10th edition “International VELUX Award 2022” for students of Architecture.

The participants have a chance to win up to 30,000 euros with their mind-blowing project.

The theme of the Velux Award

This year’s competition’s theme is “Light of Tomorrow”. It aims to encourage as well as challenge the architect students. In addition, this competition will create a deeper understanding of specific and relevant sources of energy, life and light.


Aim of VELUX Award

The International VELUX Award 2022 for Students of Architecture wants to encourage and challenge students of architecture to explore the theme of daylight – and to create a deeper understanding of this specific and ever-relevant source of energy, light and life. The award encourages projects that celebrate the privilege of being a  student with curiosity and willingness to generate unique ideas while considering the social, sociological and environmental dimensions of light.

Furthermore, the award wants to acknowledge not only the students but their teachers as well. Therefore, the VELUX will also award teachers of the projects.

VELUX encourages all the students to gather their team, connect with their teachers and start developing projects during the registration phase.
