ATA2019

Architectural Thesis Award

Archistart promoted the third Architectural Thesis Award, the international thesis award, launched with the aim of promoting, rewarding and giving visibility to young talents in architecture.
The first and the second editions of the Architectural Thesis Award ATA2017 and ATA2018 were a great success among young talent in the architecture’s world.

202 young professionals under 35 of 25 different nationalities took part in the competition with 148 projects.
