Architectural Futures

Royal Academy Dorfman Award 2019

The Architecture Studio, The Dorfman Senate Rooms, Burlington Gardens, Royal Academy of Arts

12 Apr — 27 May 2019

From Ireland and Niger to Mexico and Thailand, discover the work of the four finalists for this year’s Royal Academy Dorfman Award in the Architecture Studio.

The Royal Academy Dorfman Award champions new talent in architecture. It is awarded to an emerging architect, practice or collective that is re-imagining the possible futures of architecture and whose work demonstrates a high degree of sensitivity to local and global context.

This year, our international jury has selected four finalists from Ireland, Mexico, Niger and Thailand whose work engages with the increasingly complex conditions of 21st century living, both on a social and material scale. Through models, photographs, drawings and films, the four practices – Atelier Masōmī, Bangkok Project Studio, Fernanda Canales and TAKA architects – will present a selection of their work, giving the public a window into their practice, local culture and ethos.

This is a unique opportunity to experience the work of four international practices first-hand ahead of Awards Week, which takes place 13 – 17 May. As part of the exhibition you will have the chance to vote for your favourite finalist and the people’s choice winner will be announced during Awards Week.
