The Global Architecture Graduate Awards celebrate the achievements of the world’s finest architecture graduates. The awards seek to identify projects with a critical position that advances the role of architecture in an increasingly fractured yet globalized world. Last year the Global Architecture Graduate Awards (GAGAs), received entries from over 50 countries.
Does the world really need another student award? We think so, because now more than ever we see a need for students to think radically and propositionally, engaging with wider issues, rather than simply toying with dystopian scenography. Yet for all the evident creativity of the GAGAs, it is evident that architectural education is facing a crisis. As the world changes with daunting rapidity, it’s clear that the way architecture is taught has not kept pace with the challenges of epochal or technological change.
