The next Ralph Erskine Award will be presented in relation to the 100 anniversary of Ralph Erskine’s birth in the beginning of 2014. Anyone is welcome to submit proposals. See function on this page.
Over the years, architect Ralph Erskine received several of the world’s principal distinctions and prizes for his architecture. He amalgamated the proceeds into a fund, the Ruth and Ralph Erskine Nordic Stipend Fund, administered by the Swedish Association of Architects.
The Ralph Erskine Award was established by the fund in 1988 and amounts to 10,000 USD. Its Articles of Endowment provide for it to be conferred upon an individual, group or organization for innovation in architecture and urban design with regard to social, ecological and aesthetic aspects.
The applicant’s efforts must primarily have benefited the less privileged members of society.
