GOLDEN CUBES AWARDS 2014 – 2017

The UIA Architecture and Children Work Programme announces the launch of the UIA Architecture & Children Golden Cubes Awards 2014/2017. You are invited to present submissions relating to an activity which is currently active, or to a product produced, or an event which has taken place, at any time between August 2014 and the submission deadline of 15 March 2017.

The Awards will be presented and the winning and selected entries exhibited at the 26th UIA Congress in Seoul / Korea, September 2017.

For further information on dates and procedures for the National Nomination process please contact your UIA National Member Section.

Developing young people’s awareness of architecture, the city and sustainable development is an urgent and vital challenge. With access to knowledge in these areas they will be able, as adult citizens, to make their voices heard and influence the political, economic and social strategies, which will shape their cities and their environment.

The Awards will honour people and organizations that help children and young people to understand architecture. Entrants will be invited to submit entries describing activities or products designed to teach children and young people, from pre-school up to and including the age of 18, to understand architectural design and the processes by which our environment is formed.

The Awards will be presented in four award categories:

  • Audio-visual Media (films, audio-visual educational material, web sites…)
  • Written Media (books, magazines, non audio-visual educational tools)
  • Institutions (organisations, institutions, museums…)
  • Schools (directors, teachers, students)

The UIA Architecture & Children Golden Cubes Awards process is not a ‘competition’ for which Entrants are expected to produce new projects. Instead they are invited to present submissions relating to an activity, which is currently active, or to a product produced, or an event which has taken place.

The Award Process has two phases: National and International.

In the first phase each UIA National Member Section participating in the Award will organise a selection process at National level and nominate one entry for submission for the International Awards. In the second phase the International Jury will evaluate the Nominated Entries and select one UIA Architecture & Children Golden Cubes Award in each category.
