Exhibition of the long-list of the influential prize which is organised annually by Building Design magazine and sponsored by Autodesk.
The exhibition, celebrating the UK’s most promising emerging practices, is designed by 2010 YAYA shortlisted practice Moxon Architects with graphic designer Helios Capdevila.
The design will encompass a large-scale illustration containing one key project from each long-listed practice. The drawing-collage will envelope the entire Project Space and provide both a backdrop for the exhibition and a detailed presentation of the variety of work by this year’s entrants.
A special focus will be paid to the six shortlisted practices, George Saumarez Smith (of ADAM Architecture), Foster Lomas, IPT Architects, Jonathan Hendry Architects, RA Projects and RCKa to give the viewer a deeper insight into the personalities and working methods of these practices, offering a eye-opening and diverse array of approaches to architecture.
The exhibition presents an exciting opportunity to engage with the next generation of built environment professionals and to survey the wealth and variety of architectural output produced by young architects today. It will also offer the public a chance to judge the practices in person at a presentation by the Autodesk YAYA 2011 shortlist, chaired by Building Design editor Ellis Woodman on 8 November at 7pm.
