THE NINETEENTH ANNUAL BERKELEY UNDERGRADUATE PRIZE FOR ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN EXCELLENCE 2017
The BERKELEY PRIZE Committee announced early this month the Finalists of its current Edition: Architecture Reveals Communities. The field was particularly competitive this year, as there were students applying from 30 countries, who submitted their proposals before November 1st, last year. From these submittals, 26 authors were called to the Semifinalist round (Stage Two) of this year’s competition. We already announced that 4 of the 26 Semifinalists are African students.
At the beginning of March, the BERKELEY PRIZE Committee announced the 9 Finalists. And we are proud to say that 2 of these 9 Finalists who did it to the Second round are from Africa:
