Your drawing should communicate a new architectural proposal or existing piece of architecture, creatively depicting the experience of those that inhabit it. It can be located anywhere in the world and be at any scale. It can take the form of a plan, section, elevation, perspective or sketch. As long as it portrays part or all of a building or group of buildings, it is eligible.

Remember, your drawing should be square — 2000 pixels by 2000 pixels. If it is not, please add white space at either side or at the top and bottom to make it that way before submitting.

For more information, check out the FAQs, the Jurors Page and the Judging Criteria. We can’t wait to see your submission — good luck from everyone at Architizer!
