UIA- The daylight Award 2020 - Call for nominations

UIA- The daylight Award 2020 - Call for nominations

6 aug 2019

This year, the International Union of Architects is proud to endorse the Daylight Award, a biennial prize that honours and supports daylight research and daylight in architecture, for the benefit of human health, well-being and the environment. 

The award is organised by the non-profit, private charitable foundations, VILLUM FONDEN, VELUX FONDEN and VELUX STIFTUNG, established by Villum Kann Rasmussen. Previous winners of daylight prizes awarded by the three foundations include Jorn Utzon (1980), winning architect of the UIA-endorsed competition for the Sydney Opera House and Henning Larsen (1987), also winner of a UIA-endorsed competition for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Riyadh as well as Bob Gysin (2007), Richard Perez (2008), Peter Zumthor (2010), James Carpenter (2010), Lacaton & Vassal (2011), Gigon & Guyer (2012) and SANAA (2014). 

CATEGORIES

Now in its third edition, the Daylight Award is bestowed in two categories: Daylight Research and Daylight in Architecture, each of which carries a financial compensation of €100,000. 

Daylight in Architecture is awarded to an architect, whose work “considers the overall quality of life, its impact on human health, well-being and performance, and its value to society”. Daylight Research recognises “individuals or smaller groups of scientists who have distinguished themselves as outstanding contributors to internationally recognised daylight research”.

NOMINATIONS

Nominations are accepted, internationally, from experts in diverse fields who have a knowledge of and interest in advancing outstanding daylight research and unique use of daylight in architecture. Past laureates, professional organisations, architects, researchers and other professionals possessing expertise and interest in the field of daylight research and daylight in architecture are especially encouraged to nominate candidates. 

Additionally, the Special Advisor accepts individual nominations from architects, researchers and other professionals for consideration by the jury for the Daylight Award. 

Please send an email to the Special Advisor with the nominee’s name and contact information: PAA@VELUXfoundations.dk 

Nominations that do not result in the award are automatically carried over to the following year. 

TIMELINE

Nominations will be accepted until 1 November 2019. 

The Jury will meet early in 2020 to evaluate the nominations. 

Laureates will be announced on the UN/UNESCO `International Day of Light´, 16 May 2020.
