The Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC) has begun accepting submissions for the 2022 RAIC International Prize.
The prize, awarded every two years, celebrates excellence in architecture with a socially considered approach from around the world. The prize honours a single work of architecture that is judged to be transformative within its societal context expressive of the humanistic values of justice, respect, equality, and inclusiveness.
Any architect, team of architects, or architect-led collaboration is invited to submit a building or a related group of buildings that has been completed, occupied, and in use for at least two years prior to the entry deadline, December 3.
“Through the socially minded projects of both the prize winner and the submissions, the International Prize showcases the excellence of community oriented and uplifting design,” said John Brown, FRAIC, RAIC president.
The winner is selected in an open, juried competition. An international jury of experts will consider a range of criteria in the evaluation of submissions and intends to include site visits to shortlisted projects in the search for a work of architecture that is inspired as well as inspiring.
