The Architecture Drawing Prize

Making architectural drawings by hand is gradually becoming a thing of the past as there are now many software(CAD) that offer probably a much more dynamic and efficient way of creating and actualising architectural designs first hand, even before actual construction. Despite the dynamics of digital drawings and software we at some point still need to fall back on hand drawn sketches for references or as a quick way of communicating ideas on sheet.


To reiterate the benefits of drawing the Architectural Drawing Prize was created.

The Architecture Drawing Prize is an international competition that celebrates the art and skill of architectural drawing. The prize is curated by Make Architects, Sir John Soane’s Museum and the World Architecture Festival.
