USM supports the Young Talent Architecture Award (YTAA) 2018


The Young Talent Architecture Award (YTAA) launches its second edition supporting the talent of recently graduated Architects, Urban Planners and Landscape Architects. To stimulate the competitiveness and quality of European architecture education, schools from two guest countries will be invited to participate in YTAA 2018: China and South Korea. 

By bringing together the most talented graduated architects and some of the best architecture firms and institutions in Europe, the Winners of the YTAA will have the opportunity to develop comprehensive strategies enhancing synergies and complementarities with the firms and institutions of their choice.  

All nominated designs will be published online and will become part of the YTAA Archive as a recognition to their authors and the Schools. The four Winners will be supported in the creation of a network with the architects and critics involved in the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture «Mies van der Rohe Award» and the Future Architecture Platform.

The results of YTAA 2018 will be presented in a traveling exhibition that will start its journey in Venice, at the 2018 Architecture Biennale.  

YTAA is organized by the Fundació Mies van der Rohe with the support of Creative Europe as an extension of the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture «Mies van der Rohe Award» and WorldArchitects as Founding Partner. 

YTAA benefits from the partnership of the Architects’ Council of Europe (ACE) and The European Association for Architectural Education (EAAE) and the local partner in Venice is The European Cultural Centre (ECC). The organization of YTAA 2018 counts with the participation of Jung and Jansen and the support of USM.
