Brief

There is a point of inception and a point of termination. Between these two points, Architecture is conceived. Not all designs reach its point of termination due to various circumstances.

Silkmatters recognizes those un-built projects which don’t meet its fruition, yet bears so much potential in them. Students and recent graduates in Architecture and all its affiliated fields are invited to send their Architectural Projects to achieve the recognition that their ideas deserve. If not for these ideas, no masterpieces would have been created.

Gaudi Architecture Prize serves as a platform to all those brilliant minds which would shape the future of Architectural Landscape. We aim to acknowledge and recognize academic projects which have the potential to create a difference in the world.
