The Arts Council has announced the launch of two new exciting awards, ‘Engaging with Architecture Scheme 2019’ and the new ‘Architecture Project Award 2019’. The purpose of the Architecture Project Award is to support ambitious new work in, or about, architecture through the creation of spatial, material or other physical work that has a real and tangible output that can be experienced by a public.

Potential proposals could be those that enable the production of work in architecture that is challenging and embraces artistic risk, enable the exploration and/or testing of creative ideas in architecture or develops critical discourse on architecture as an artform.

Applications for the Architecture Project Award must be made directly to the Arts Council before 17:30 on Thursday, 15 August 2019. Guidelines and details of the application process will be published in July 2019.
