The 2020 Europe 40 Under 40, an annual awards program that celebrates the next new talented generation of European architects and designers, is now open for entries.
The program is directed to support new and emerging design talents that will influence the near future of European design, thinking, and theory with the direct consequence of impacting future environments and future European and international cities. The key is to bring wider recognition to 40 of the most promising emerging professionals working in the European Union and other countries inside Europe, fostering and encouraging new talent and new creative thinking at the forefront of tomorrow’s profession.
Every year, architects and designers under the age of 40 (as of December 1, 2020) are invited to submit projects (built or unbuilt, manufactured or conceptual) to be judged by a panel of distinguished architectural and design practitioners, developers, architectural journalists, educators, and critics.
The results of Europe 40 Under 40 are announced in early 2021 and take the form of an exhibition that will open and travel inside Europe. The exhibition is also presented in The United States by The Chicago Athenaeum.
