The International VELUX Award is a competition for students of architecture that runs every second year. Since the launch in 2004, it has grown into the largest competition of its kind with more than 4,500 students from over 80 countries submitting more than 5,500 projects on the award theme “Light of Tomorrow”. International VELUX Award 2020 is organised in close collaboration with the International Union of Architects (UIA) and the World Architecture Festival (WAF). The esteemed international jury evaluated the 579 daylight projects submitted from 250 different schools in 60 countries. The winners represent a mosaic of different approaches to the question of light, as they cover a range of futuristic concepts, technology and applications, as well as the more fundamental aspects of architecture, space, place and memory.
