Entry Guidelines

Your task is as follows: Create one drawing that communicates a new architectural proposal or existing piece of architecture, and the experience of those that would inhabit it. It can be located anywhere in the world and be at any scale. It can take any of the following forms:

  • Plan
  • Section
  • Elevation
  • Perspective (1 or 2 point)
  • Parallel Projection (axonometric, isometric etc.)
  • Sketch
  • Detail
  • Abstract

Your drawing may depict a real or imagined space, place, building or group of buildings. As long as it portrays architecture in some form, it is eligible. Your drawing should be accompanied by a short description of your proposal, which comprises your “story”. Your story should help explain what your drawing depicts, which could include: The type of architecture portrayed, where it might be located, who might inhabit it, what atmosphere it conjures, the essence it captures, and what makes it special.

Your drawing should be a minimum of 2000 pixels wide, with a maximum file size of 15MB. All the competition guidelines can be found here.

New to the Jury: James Wines, Bless Yee and More

Finalists will be scored by a stellar jury of practitioners and thought leaders from the worlds of architecture, design and technology, each with a special connection to drawing. The jury will represent those leaders who are actively bringing architecture to the public today, both online and in the built environment.

Exciting new additions to this year’s One Drawing Challenge jury include renowned architect and artist James Wines — who has drawings exhibited in the Museum of Modern Art, no less! — and Handel Architects Associate Bless Yee, who scooped the non-student prize last year for her incredible drawing “Together Alone.” You can read more about Yee’s extraordinary illustration in this exclusive interview.

For entrants and winners, the One Drawing Challenge presents a huge opportunity to get their work in front of the people shaping how the world engages with architecture, now and in the future. To learn more about every member of the jury, click here!
