About Awards

ArchDaily, Strelka KB, and Strelka Institute for Media, Architecture, and Design announce the second edition of their jointly curated award and are accepting applications from the territories of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Estonia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan.

More than ever, in the wake of the current pandemic, we need an architecture that emphasizes social infrastructure, community building, health, and wellbeing. As the planetary environmental crisis continues to worsen, it is becoming ever more crucial to enact responsible design solutions and frameworks.

The ArchDaily & Strelka Award aims to spotlight emerging architects and offices who help make their cities and communities resilient in the face of looming crises. The 2019 edition of the award brought together a great selection of contemporary architecture, and we look forward to showcasing more new names and their outstanding projects this time around.

Who can apply?

If your office is located in one of the aforementioned countries, you can submit any project: housing, shopping malls, theaters, places of worship, public spaces, etc. We also accept completed interior design projects. Offices that have existed for 10 years or less can submit projects that were completed no earlier than 2016. One office can submit several works. ArchDaily and Strelka Mag editors will curate and select the best projects. All selected submissions will be published in the Russian and English versions of Strelka Mag and on ArchDaily, reaching a combined audience of millions.

How to apply:

To submit your application, please fill out this form. We kindly ask that Russian-speaking architects provide a written description of the project in both Russian and English. Editors may edit the texts for clarity or brevity. You can find more information about the publication requirements here. Please upload all files to Dropbox or Google Drive, and include the link at the end of the form.
