Why the Claude Parent Prize

To encourage alternative and visionary architecture


Inspired by Claude Parent's constant will to question architecture in its foundations, to research and experiment with an alternative architectural scenario, this international prize aims to reward active architects whose work opens new fields for this discipline. It will also allow architecture students to attend demanding debates, to better understand the work of Claude Parent, that of the winner(s), the members of the jury, and above all to take note of the necessity, today, to explore and propose new transgressions.
