How can you interpret the concept Habitation through a digital drawing? 365 architecture students from 64 different countries gave it a try and submitted drawings for the international student competition Drawing of the Year 2016. Friday 2 December the winners were announced at Aarhus School of Architecture.
The competition theme inspired the contestants to submit drawings that deal with all aspects of Habitation. The jury found that the drawings, in general, represent a variety of typologies often inspired by different traditions within painting, collages and architectural representation and bridging the digital and the analogue, the real and the imagined, the abstract and the concrete with great freedom.
The jury has awarded the best drawings within different typologies celebrating the variety of the expression of the architectural imagination. The awarded drawings have been chosen as leading examples of different drawing typologies and for their exploration of the theme Habitation, putting forward new insights and statements.
All drawings were anonymised in the assessment process.
