ACARA 2022, Online

The 11th Asian Contest of Architectural Rookie's Award
The 11th Asian Contest of Architectural Rookies Award

AUA will plan to hold the 11th ACARA for all students who are studying architecture design in Asia, aiming to provide high-quality education in architecture by stimulating a creative will and a competitive spirit of goodwill.
It will be a good opportunity to bring out your potential ability and to improve your ability of architectural design.


The world is finally recovering from this unprecedented event of COVID-19. In such a current situation, we would like to think about what architecture after Corona should be.

Architectural design is also facing changes due to the influence of corona, but there are various ideas related to changes in architectural programs and how to use space. Definitions of what changes and what do not change, and concepts such as concentration and decentralization, liberation and closure will be key.

Regardless of the building type, whether it's a house, school, office or museum, we look forward to students' innovative works on post-corona architecture.
