The competition calls for ideas that show water in all its forms can stimulate architectural creativity. The competition brief is very wide-ranging. Proposals can be located near water, over water or even under water. They may be submitted for large or small scale buildings, shelters, structures, urban and rural planning.

The 10th International Design Competition is held at a memorable turning point in human history as we enter a new millennium. In the twenty-first century, the world will have to tackle a number of global problems: growing population, dwindling food supply, destruction of the environment, and the impact of the rapid advances in information technology. The theme of this competition is to suggest ideas to help the world resolve the problems it faces. What is sought is mediation, as light and casual as the film of a soap bubble, capable of maintaining the critical balance between these conflicting global pressures.

Archiprix the Netherlands prize for final year students, has done much to generate a vibrant architectural culture in the Netherlands (AR September, p82), and is becoming international.

Archiprix 2001 will be judged by a distinguished international jury. The 50 best projects will be made into an exhibition to be held at the Van Nelle factory, Rotterdam, Mart Stain's marvellous Modernist masterpiece, which has been converted into a cultural centre. From these the winner will be chosen. Selected projects will be published in The Architectural Review, and Archiprix hopes to publish a book on the entries.

From this month, schools can apply through the website, where full details of the award can be obtained. Each entry should have six A2 panels, ten 35mm slides and a 500 word synopsis of intentions. Further details will be given in the AR shortly, and on our own website
