« 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.
