This Award is organised in collaboration with the European Association for Architectural Education (EAAE) and the International Union of Architects (UIA). With this Award, on the theme: “Light of Tomorrow”, VELUX seeks to foster an openminded dialogue on daylight in its widest sense. While there are no specific categories, entries may focus on: sunlight as a natural source of lighting and energy; daylight’s contribution to visual quality and comfort in interior living spaces; rethinking daylight in urban living contexts ; the importance of sunlight and daylight in sustainable architecture in harmony with the rhythms of nature; more abstract concepts like daylight versus artificial light, day versus night, in versus out. Total prize money: 30000 €, first prize(s): 8000 €. Info: tel +45 45 164818 e-mail:; - bando.pdf
