2A Magazine is proud to announce the release of posters and submission calendar of the fourth 2A Continental Architectural Awards for Asia and Europe (2ACAA). The 2ACAA Architectural Design awards, with the theme “ Innovative Contextual Design”, are aimed to recognize and praise an individual’s or group’s substantial contribution to today’s architecture. This gathering is a manifestation of the diversity of cultures, identities, themes, ideas, and experiences in architecture. It also is a great platform to share, explore and discuss the theory and practice of architecture in a professional environment.
Meet Our Esteemed Academic Partner, this time, in SPAIN
As one of our more important policies, every year, we try to hold the award events in an architecturally-significant city of the world, for example in previous years 2ACAA took place in Istanbul, Vienna and Berlin. This year with the effort and attentiveness of Ahmad Zohadi, the chief editor of 2A magazine, the main academic partner of 2A Continental Architectural Awards for Asia and Europe (2ACAA) is Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC). Accordingly, the award ceremony and other events related to the organization of this architecture competition will take place in Barcelona, Spain.
