In memory of Alan Davidson – the late, great pioneer of architectural visualisation – The Davidson Prize is a new architectural ideas prize that rewards transformative concepts for the architecture of the home. The inaugural theme ‘Home/Work – A New Future’ has been prompted by the need to reassess how we want to live post-pandemic, with many of us seeking to continue working from home.
This year’s jury comprises internationally acclaimed architect Alison Brooks; London-based designer Thomas Heatherwick; writer, author and television presenter Michelle Ogundehin; senior partner at Foster + Partners Narinder Sagoo and director of the Museum of the Home, Sonia Solicari. The jury will select three finalists who will each receive £5,000 to develop their ideas. The overall winner will receive a prize of £10,000.
The Davidson Prize is split into two stages, with the deadline to register interest 12:00 GMT on 23 December 2020. Registered teams will then have until 31 January 2021 to upload their submissions. Multi-disciplinary creative teams are actively encouraged but each team must include an architect registered with ARB (UK) or RIAI (Eire).
