The RAIC invites submissions for the 2022 RAIC International Prize Scholarships

The RAIC invites submissions for the 2022 RAIC International Prize Scholarships  

The deadline for submissions is January 14, 2022.

The RAIC International Prize Scholarships are awarded in conjunction with the RAIC International Prize and will be presented at the 2022 Conference on Architecture in Vancouver, BC.

The RAIC International Prize Scholarships are open to students registered in a Canadian architecture program at any point in the period between the submission deadline for the previous cycle of the RAIC International Prize Scholarships and the submission deadline of the current cycle.

Up to three scholarships, each in the amount of CAD 5,000, will be awarded to the selected winners.

The award of the Scholarships will be based on submissions from individual students that address a defined topic in the form of an original essay in English or French, a maximum of 1,000 words in length, with illustrations that complement and clarify ideas explored in the text.

The essay topic for the 2022 RAIC International Prize Scholarships will address the objectives and criteria of the RAIC International Prize and is based on the following questions:

The RAIC International Prize celebrates works of architecture that are judged to have been “transformative within their societal context.”

Please explain how a work of architecture can be transformative. Can you cite examples that demonstrate how the impact of a single building on a community can be seen as transformative? Is every good building transformative on some level?

Submissions will be evaluated on the applicant’s expression of vision, aspiration, and on the strength of personal conviction.

National Urban Design Awards — Call for Submissions

Submission deadline: 11:59 p.m. EST, December 17, 2021

Urban design plays an important role in maintaining and enhancing the quality of life in Canadian communities.

The Royal Architectural Institute of Canada, Canadian Institute of Planners and the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects – in cooperation with Canadian municipalities – work closely to promote awareness of that role. In 2006, the three groups established the National Urban Design Awards program to recognize individuals, organizations, firms, and projects in Canada that have contributed to the quality of life and the sustainability of Canadian cities.

The National Urban Design Awards program encourages the submission of multidisciplinary projects involving planners, landscape architects, architects, students, and other disciplines. The program recognizes the importance and impact of inter and multidisciplinary teams in enhancing the qualify of life in Canadian communities.

$40,000 Total Prize Money
Submission Deadline: November 15, 2021

This design competition asks architects, landscape architects, engineers, designers and cross-disciplinary practitioners to reimagine the highway gas station of today as an entirely new Canadian roadside oasis for electric vehicles, where travellers can rest, play, eat, refuel and more. Unlike city driving, longer road trips create range anxiety in non-EV owners, representing a barrier to adoption. To accelerate the transition to a low-carbon future, we want to show drivers the positive possibilities and innovative benefits of the EV lifestyle. Our international, award-winning jury is looking for inspiring, boundary-breaking work that will help reinvigorate the built environment along Canada’s transit and tourism corridors to serve as a blueprint for the future.
