The Prix de Rome in Architecture for Emerging Practitioners is awarded to a recent graduate from a Canadian architectural school who has demonstrated exceptional potential in contemporary architectural design. With this prize, the recipient may visit architectural buildings and carry out an internship at an internationally renowned architectural firm anywhere in the world.
2018 submissions for Emerging Practitioners are due to the Canada Council for the Arts by October 2.
Inspired by the Prix de Rome in architecture, which was created in the 18th century and helped young architects train in Italy, the Prix de Rome in Architecture for Emerging Practitioners was established in Canada in 1987 in pursuit of a more outward-looking vision towards the world. This year, a $34,000 prize for the work program, travel and public presentation is being offered.
For eligibility criteria, the application form and for further information on this prize, see the Prix de Rome in Architecture for Emerging Practitioners Guidelines, linked here. The deadline for applications to this year’s prize is October 2, 2018. A peer assessment committee will select the recipient from among all applicants.
