The exhibition, organised by Fundació Mies van der Rohe presents at Tongji University, China, displays the 211 Graduation Projects that were nominated for the Young Talent Architecture Award (YTAA) 2016. This is the first stop of the exhibition out of Europe. Other Architecture Schools will follow suit, with the aim to discover how architecture studies are being carried forward and to open the debate on how architecture is taught.
Projects are displayed separately as Nominees, Shortlisted, Finalists and Winners in order to explain the YTAA as a discussion and selection process. By highlighting the results of YTAA 2016 the intention is to transmit the enthusiasm to architecture students and schools and encourage them to take part in the upcoming YTAA 2018.
The Fundació Mies van der Rohe encourages the institutions hosting the exhibition to invite the Winners and Finalists to explain their projects and/or a representative of the Fundació Mies van der Rohe – YTAA team to make a presentation of the Award.
