Submissions for Harvard’s Early Career Architecture Prize open this month

Harvard’s Wheelwright Prize, a $100,000 traveling fellowship originally established in 1935 and open only to alumni of Harvard’s Graduate School of Design, has been expanded this year to include architects practicing anywhere in the world.

Given annually to young architects who have demonstrated exceptional design talent, scholarly and professional merit and who show promise of continued creative work, the Wheelwright Prize is considered ‘the most generous gift specifically intended for early career architects’ by New York architect Cathy Lang Ho, who has been helping to organize the competition.

The competition for the prize officially opens on 10 January 2013. Details for entering can be found on the competition website here. Eligible applicants are those who have graduated from a professionally accredited architecture program in the last 15 years. An international jury (to be announced in January) will select a winner who will be named on 15 May 2013.

The Wheelwright Prize organizing committee, which includes Dean Moshen Mostafavi, GSD professors Michael Hays and Jorge Silvettti, and Assistant Dear Benjamin Prosky, emphasizes that the award is ‘not just about travel...but about binding the idea of geography to themes and issues that hold great potential relevance to contemporary practice’.
