It is really impressive and encouraging to see that despite the terrible situation in Iraq today there is still a lot of
great work being produced by students throughout the architecture schools of Iraq. A number of these works
embrace a sense of optimism and hope for the future of Iraq and use the language of architecture to tackle sensitive
political issues head on. It’s both inspiring and humbling when considered against the backdrop of an ongoing civil
war in the country.
The judging panel comprises architects from Iraq, Spain, France, the Netherlands, the UK and ourselves from
Sweden. The discussions were stimulating with differing views and opinions being expressed in an open and
constructive manner. After 8 hours of deliberation consensus was reached. The winner will be announced on the
10th of october 2015.
