Munich, June 27, 2012 – From June 14 to July 15, 2012, Allplan will be looking for young and talented architects. The Allplan Young Architects Award (AYAA) 2012 represents a call for students and young professionals (up to 32 years old) to put forward a specific idea or project that has been designed and/or implemented using the Allplan CAD software. The award offers also an opportunity to reach a broad public. The drafts can be submitted by simply uploading them in a facebook app. A jury of three will nominate the best projects and award them a 3D plot.
"With the Allplan Young Architects Award 2012, we want to help prepare young talented architects for their future career. As well as the official award, we also provide the winners with the platform to present their ideas and drafts effectively to an international public”, says Peter Mehlstäubler, Managing Director, Nemetschek Allplan GmbH.
The international competition started on June 14 and runs until July 15, 2012. It is open to all architecture students and young architects at the beginning of their career. We are looking for creative CAD projects designed and/or implemented with Allplan BIM software. The Cinema 4D visualization software from Maxon is also allowed for renderings.
The drafts can be submitted quickly and easily via facebook: www.facebook.com/Nemetschek.Allplan. Allplan provides an app with an upload function for all participants. There are no format templates or requirements. Because AYAA 2012 is aimed at supporting young, talented architects, participants may not be older than 32 at the time of submission. The jury will consist of three experts from Nemetschek Allplan, who will evaluate and rate submissions based on the project idea, quality, and uniqueness. The first three winners will each receive a 3D plot of their draft. All winner projects will also be shown on the websites of Nemetschek Allplan.
