On March 4, BUCEA held the award ceremony of UIA2020RIO International Ideas Competition for Architecture Students at the 27th World Congress of Architects. The ceremony was attended by ZHAO Qi, Deputy Supervisor of the Architectural Society of China (ASC), and WANG Xiaojing, Deputy Secretary-General of the ASC. BUCEA’s leadership, participants, and their advisor were also present.
The ceremony, which should have been convened on site in Brazil in 2021, was postponed until this year due to COVID-19. As the world’s foremost competition for architecture students, the International Ideas Competition for Architecture Students organized by the International Union of Architects (UIA) is acclaimed as “the Olympic Games for architecture students around the world”.
In total, 180 projects from 12 countries and regions in the world were submitted to the competition. After the evaluation by experts of the competition, six projects were awarded, with three of them winning respectively the first, second, and third prize and the others honorable mentions. Chinese participants swept four of the six awards. Among them, BUCEA won the second prize, which was the best result achieved by the university in the selection.
On behalf of UIA and ASC, ZHAO Qi, Deputy Supervisor of the ASC, extended congratulations to the BUCEA’s winners.
