Awards programme

The President's Medals are regarded as the most prestigious student awards in architectural education. They are awarded annually to the best design project at Part 1, the best design project at Part 2 and the best overall dissertation. Schools are invited to submit their nominations in September, and the award winners are announced in December. There is also an exhibition of the submitted work, profiling the best and most innovative student work emerging from schools of architecture worldwide.

The Annie Spink Award for Excellence in Architectural Education is a biannual award for an academic or group of academics who have made an outstanding contribution to architectural education. Details on the 2012 awards and nomination process are available on the webpage, along with an archive of award winners.
