Three prizes of $3,000* each are awarded to students at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation whose fall semester architectural design (MArch & AAD) studio projects most successfully comply with, interpret, and/or critically extend the terms and spirit of the 2015 Paris Agreement. Special consideration is given to work that combines the social, technical, political, and symbolic implications of the climate accord in an architecturally specific fashion, at multiple scales.
The deadline for the 2019 awards cycle has passed; more information will be posted soon. This prize forms a part of the Buell Center’s ongoing research project, “Power: Infrastructure in America.” Examples of winning submissions from 2017 are available online and may be consulted by appointment in the Buell Center office.

*In accordance with University and Federal policy, prizes and awards are taxable and are reported to Financial Aid to be included in the student’s financial aid package, and may reduce other financial aid the student may receive.
