AF seeks entries for 'best new talent' book

  • Comment

The Architecture Foundation (AF) is on the hunt for the next wave of emerging architectural talent for the third volume of its New Architects book series

Scheduled for publication in March next year, New Architects 3 will feature ‘around’ 100 of the best practices founded since 2005 and working architecture, urban design, public space and reated areas.

Entrants will be judged for inclusion by a panel of critics including AF director Ellis Woodman, Kate Goodwin of the Royal Academy of Arts, and Vicky Richardson of the British Council.

Woodman said that at 320 pages the book would contain twice as much space as its prececessor volumes, offering selected practices the opportunity to show off their work at greater length.

‘The book describes the work of firms that have set up in the past decade - a period when architectural practice has undergone enormous change,’ he said.

‘Far more UK practices are working internationally than was the case a decade ago and many are working at very diverse scales.

‘As the example of a practice like [Turner Prize-nominated] Assemble suggests, many of the old disciplinary boundaries are also being challenged. Our ambition is that New Architects 3 reflects that new and fluid condition.’

Practices seeking to join the fray for inclusion must be UK based, have been formed after 1 January, 2005, and have competed at least one building.

The deadline for applications is 10 June.

More details are available on the AF website.
