Architect’s Eye photography competition launched with exhibition planned for Zaha-designed gallery

Architect’s Eye, a competition which celebrates and encourages photography by architects, now been launched. The competition, organised by International Art Consultants, is now being held for the fourth time since its launch in 2007.

The competition is open to UK architects and is split into two distinct categories: Architecture and Place and Architecture and People. The former focuses solely on the aesthetics of the architecture and places it creates, while the latter explores and celebrates the interaction of people with the environments created by architects. The winner in each category will receive a weekend break for two anywhere in the EU.

This year the Architect’s Eye Judging Panel is chaired by leading architect Simon Allford, Director at international studio Allford Hall Monaghan Morris. Simon is a frequent lecturer and critic in the UK and abroad and he has been Vice President of RIBA (Education), a Chair of Design Review CABE and the Architecture Association. Simon’s recent projects include the Google Headquarters at Kings Cross, the Angel Building, Chobham Academy, The Saatchi Gallery and Yellow Building.

The winning works will be showcased in an exhibition at the Zaha Hadid-designed Roca London Gallery coinciding with the start of the London Festival of Architecture in July 2013. Further information on Architect’s Eye, including application form for entries, can be found at www.architectseye.co.uk. Closing date for entries is Tuesday 30th April.
