The “Europe 40 Under 40” program was initiated by The European Center as an annual program to spotlight and identify the next generation of architects and designers who will impact future living and working environments, cities, and rural areas.
Presented annually, the program is open to all young architects, landscape architects, urban planners, industrial designers, graphic designers, and fashion and textile designers who are under the age of 40 who are working independently or in a firm or on a specific project where they are the lead designer.
The deadline for the 2011 program is November 30, 2010.
The results of Europe 40 Under 40 are announced in Summer 2011 and take the form of an exhibition opening in Europe and scheduled for travel. The exhibition is also presented in the United States by The Chicago Athenaeum. A catalogue accompanies the exhibition and documents the work of the 40 selected architects.
Applications are available online at The European Centre’s website at www.europeanarch.eu.
