UIA International Student Competition 2014

Deadline: March 31, 2014; Registration Deadline: October 31, 2013

Students from across the world are invited to join the UIA International Student Competition. This competition provides an opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students from schools of architecture around the world to submit their solutions for short, medium and long-term interventions around the dynamic and complex Warwick Junction site in Durban, South Africa.


The work of shortlisted student teams will be exhibited, and the competition winners announced, at the UIA 2014 Durban Congress in August 2014. The monetary value of the awards is estimated as follows in South African Rands:

  • GOLD R 50 000
  • SILVER R 30 000
  • BRONZE R 20 000

Outside of the cash value of the prizes, the prestige of winning this competition, which forms part of the UIA International Congress of Architecture, cannot be overstated.


  • This competition is limited to students who study architecture (undergraduate and graduate levels).
  • Copies of Student Identity Cards or documentation proving that each member of the team is a student at the time of submitting the competition entry must be provided on registration.
  • The students may submit projects that were done under the supervision of lecturers at their schools of study.


The competition teams or individual entrants must register online, via the UIA 2014 website www.uia2014durban.org by October 31, 2013. Application fee. The application fee is set at R 500 (South African Rands) per competition project entry.
