Columbia GSAPP is pleased to announce the winning projects for the 2018 Buell Center Paris Prize. This annual prize, which was awarded for the first time in 2017, invites students to propose architectural responses to challenges associated with the changing climate. Three prizes of $3,000 were awarded to students from the Master of Architecture and the Advanced Architectural Design programs whose fall semester design studio projects most successfully complied with, interpreted, and/or critically extended the terms and spirit of the 2015 Paris Agreement, a global treaty adopted within the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. Special consideration was given to work that combined the social, technical, political, and symbolic implications of the climate accord in an architecturally specific fashion, at multiple scales. A jury composed of Buell Center Advisory Board Members selected one winning project and runners-up from each of the first-, second-, and third-year fall semester studios.
