Architecture Thesis Of The Year 2020 Winners
The ‘Architecture Thesis of the Year | ATY 2020’ competition organized by theCharette has been a great success. The competition received over 1000 entries from 104 nations across the world. The crème de la crème of thesis projects from students all over the world, have been selected as the winners.
Top Three Winners:
1st Prize Winner
ISTHME // L e CHAOS SENSIBLE by Dafni Filippa and Meriam Sehimi from Germany took home the top prize with their people oriented project.
The students from the Technical University of Munich designed a scheme that the jury described as “poetic, based on real-life observations, lightweight and extraordinarily beautiful.”
Jurors loved the simplicity and fluidity of the masterplan and how another culture is interpreted. They felt that drawings are adequate, sensitive and stunning.
2nd Prize Winner
Fabiola del Carmen Cruz Ballardo, from Peru, won second place for her project, AMAZONIA TRANS _ TRI _ FRONTERIZA.
Three countries: Peru, Brazil, Bolivia; and two communities: Mancheron, Yamaha. All separated by artificial borders. Nevertheless, they share a common Amazonian culture.
There is a will to unite people in this project, to respect different traditions, to propose different places, uniting past present and future with traditional languages, medical plants and culture. A « bridge » is created to consolidate this place and to respect it through the world: it can be seen like an SOS. Because this project is also implicitly about the amazon forest: calling to save its richness, be it natural or cultural.
3rd Prize Winner
Third place in the competition went to Philip Springall from United Kingdom.
His project is a multidisciplinary exploration of Alzheimer’s disease, architecture and neuroscience. Alzheimer’s is a progressive disease that slowly strips away the notions of place, memory, identity and the self.
The project investigates the role that architecture and the built environment can play in improving the lives of those with Alzheimer’s disease. The jury felt that the project “…contemplates a powerful concept which might have great applications in the real world.”

Architecture Thesis Of The Year Contest
Competition Brief – https://thecharette.org/architecture-thesis-of-the-year-2020/
the Charette has launched ‘Architecture Thesis of the Year | ATY 2020’
– an international architecture thesis competition that aims to extend appreciation to the tireless effort and exceptional creativity of student thesis in the fields of Architecture, Urban Design, Landscape and Restoration. We seek to encourage young talent in bringing their path breaking ideas to the forefront on a global scale.
Academic Design endeavors allow the free flow of unfettered ideas – experimental, bold, promising, and unconventional. An intensive architectural discourse and a collaborative design process are essential to develop ingenious solutions to complex problems of the future.
An Architecture Thesis is considered the avant-garde – pushing the boundaries of what is accepted as the norm in the architectural realm. It is the outcome of months of painstaking research and an excruciating design process yet it hardly gets any recognition beyond the design studio. It is imperative to share such revolutionary ideas with the entire fraternity to open up new possibilities of dialogue.
The competition is open to students of all nationalities and institutions in the fields of Architecture, Urban Design, Landscape and Restoration. All Undergraduate/Bachelors and Graduate/Masters Thesis conducted in the calendar year 2017 – 2020 are eligible to participate.
