CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: 2019 WHEELWRIGHT PRIZE | THE PLAN
By Editorial Staff -

The Harvard Graduate School of Design (GSD) is pleased to announce the 2019 cycle of the Wheelwright Prize, an open international competition that awards $100,000 to a talented early-career architect to support travel-based research. The 2019 Wheelwright Prize is now accepting applications; the deadline for submissions is Sunday, January 27, 2019.
This annual prize is dedicated to fostering new forms of architectural research informed by cross-cultural engagement. The Wheelwright Prize is open to emerging architects practicing anywhere in the world. The primary eligibility requirement is that applicants must have received a degree from a professionally accredited architecture program in the past 15 years. An affiliation to the GSD is not required. Applicants are asked to submit a portfolio, a research proposal, and a travel itinerary that takes them outside their country of residence.
In 2013, Harvard GSD recast the Arthur W. Wheelwright Traveling Fellowship - established in 1935 in memory of Wheelwright, Class of 1887 - into its current form. Intended to encourage the study of architecture outside the United States at a time when international travel was difficult, the Fellowship was available only to GSD alumni. The winner of the 2018 prize was Aude-Line Dulière from Brussels, for her proposal to examine construction methods and supply systems in the global film industry.
An international jury will be announced in January 2019. Applicants will be judged on the quality of their design work, scholarly accomplishments, originality or persuasiveness of the research proposal, and evidence of ability to fulfill the proposed project. Applications are accepted online only, at wheelwrightprize.org. Finalists MUST be available to travel to Cambridge, Massachusetts, for finalist presentations on March 14, 2019, at the GSD. A winner will be named in Spring 2019.
