Prose is architecture, not interior decoration. – Ernest Hemingway
The editorial board of Architecture Ireland – the official journal of the RIAI – is delighted to launch a new Student Writing Prize, which is open to all students of architecture and architectural technology in Ireland. The objective of the prize is to nurture and recognise the importance of writing in architecture.
Students are invited to contribute an article of no more than 600 words on a theme of their choice – whether a building or a book; an architect or a movement; both contemporary and historic subject matters will be considered.
With the support of Forbo, we have established a Prize Fund of €1,000 for the winning article and €500 each for two runners-up. Both the winner and runners-up will be published in Architecture Ireland magazine.
The Judging Panel
Stephen Best, architect, educator and writer; Dr. Ellen Rowley, architectural historian, writer and editor; Michael Hayes, AI online editor and editor of 2ha; and Dr. Sandra O’Connell, editor of Architecture Ireland.
Submission deadline is 5 June 2015. Submissions should be sent as a word doc – marked ‘Architecture Ireland Student Writing Prize’ – to the editor, firstname.lastname@example.org
