Here’s some information from our friends at Laufen and Architectural Review about The Architectural Review House Awards 2011 . If you want to get your hands on the £10,000 award and be published in the Architectural Review then you’d better read on…
“Call for entries: Laufen sponsors excellent house architecture
“Laufen sponsors prize of £10,000 for the design of a private house. The names of the winners will be published in the August edition of Architectural Review and the award ceremony will take place in London on 7 September.
“Private houses enjoy a unique status both in the history of architecture and in the human imagination. Their core function is to provide shelter, a secure roof over one’s head – but they are also objects of desire, the canvas onto which people project their wishes and a playground for architects. From Le Corbusier to Koolhaas, the history of modern architecture can be traced through a series of groundbreaking private houses.
“The AR House Awards, which were awarded for the second time in 2011, wish to promote and strengthen this tradition, regardless of the size, location, budget or age of the project. The only condition is that the building project must have already been completed. A prestigious international jury will assess all of the projects which have been submitted on www.arhouse.co.uk by 27 May 2011. The award ceremony will take place on 7 September 2011 as part of an event in London.”
