Young Talent Architecture Award Young Talent Architecture Award 2016 The graduation project carried out by Alvaro Siza in 1965 consisted ofa set of four single-family houses located in a village on the Portuguese north coast, He used two different colours of ink to draw by hand the design of the urban planning of all four houses, developing one of them to its precise construction details. Fifty-three years later, representation techniques in architectural design have changed radically. Does this also apply to the essence of today’s graduation projects? Which topics are addressed, and which objectives want to be achieved? What do architecture students design today as their last academic exercise? Is the graduation project a solution to a reality or a commission dealing with an urban conflict? YTAA 2016 received 211 graduation project submissions from over 100 Schools from 86 European cities. The jury, formed by: José Luis Vallejo, principal at Ecosistema Urbano, Madrid (Chairman); Inge Beckel, editor at the Swiss-Architects.com eMagazine, Zurich; Michal Duda, curator at the Museum of Architecture, Wroclaw; Juulia Kauste, director at the Museum of Finnish Architecture, Helsinki; Triin Ojari, director at the Museum of Estonian Architecture, Tallinn. The jury reviewed all these designs and made a shortlist of thirty. Nine became finalists, from which three became the winners of YTAA 2016, Within the frame of the 15th International Architecture Exhibition — La Biennale di Venezia, the YTAA 2016 granting ceremony took place at Teatro Piccolo Arsenale in Venice on October 28th 2016. This publication presents the art designs, a collection of photomontages, photographs of models, collages and drawings, illustrating proposals thought for and located in different geographic and social contexts. A variety of approaches to designing and understanding emergent urban challenges that must be met, is a common aspect that the jury highlighted. ‘Twenty-one years after presenting his graduation project, at age 53, lvaro Siza finished building the Borges & Irmao Bank, winner the first European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture - van der Rohe Award (1988).
